Falling Foss, Ruswarp

A tall plume and small deep plunge pool at the head of a wooded gorge. Shingle beach. Overlooked but feels secluded.

Directions: Follow B1416 from Whitby S and take the ‘middle’ R after 3 miles, signed Newton House / Falling Foss. Follow lane for a mile to car park. Continue down through woods on foot. To reach base of falls walk downstream, scramble down into gorge, then follow stream bed back up. Also small pool upstream of Midge Hall (50m).
