Scalebar Force is a stunning waterfall with many levels. It stands around 40 feet high and enters a small wooded ravine via a bridge under the Settle to Malham road. The flow of the water changes direction with each level it drops and the beauty of the waterfall is enhanced by the cloak of green mosses which cover the limestone rocks.
