High Force, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in England.
High Force is situated on the Upper Teesdale Raby Estate, near Middleton-in-Teesdale. Raby Castle is situated 20 miles further East at Staindrop.
See High Force WaterfallThe woodland walk leads you to this spectacular sight. As you begin the descent down the gentle slope the well-maintained path twists and turns giving a different view every few yards. The muffled rumble suddenly turns to a roar and the sight astounds you. High Force commands your respect.
From its rise as a trickle, high on the heather covered fells at the top of the North Pennines, to the top of the whin sill rock at Forest -in-Teesdale, the River Tees steadily grows and gathers pace, then it suddenly and spectacularly drops 21 metres into the plunge pool below.
