Description:

Mill Gill Force is a hidden waterfall in a lovely secluded pocket of woodland near Askrigg, Wensleydale. The gill gets it's name from mill which stands half a mile downstream. Water crashes over the rocks dropping around 25 feet below before seeming to split into three and descend down a second drop of around 3 feet. It is a lovely waterfall that is best when combined with a trip to Whitfield Gill Force, a further kilometre along the footpath.
