Wain Wath Force, Keld

Just by the road, this wide and graceful low waterfall has a very pleasant plunge pool with limestone cliffs and grassy banks for picnics. Interesting river and rock shapes downstream and good paddling.

Directions: Head NW 1⁄2 mile from Keld (dir Kirkby Stephen) on B6270 to find falls on R, 200m after the turning to W Stonesdale (DL11 6DZ). Limited parking.
