About High Force Waterfall

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.

The Experience:

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.

The Woodland Walk:

One of the many resting points along the woodland walkThe pretty woodland walk is approximately 1/3 of a mile, with several resting points along the way. It is a gently sloping gravel path.
