Waterfalls of the Yorkshire Dales
 
 
Welcome Welcome to the Waterfalls of the Yorkshire Dales website. Through this site, I wish to share my passion for both the Yorkshire Dales landscape and one of the most dramatic elements of any landscape, the waterfall. Spectacular waterfalls high up in  Swaledale to the magnificent waterfalls walk at Ingleton are explored and as well as displaying my photography I will aim to pass on my knowledge of the waterfall to you with maps, stories and interesting facts.
