In the Beginning God Created Yorkshire!

YORKSHIRE WATERFALLS


Since taking up Photography 4 years ago, one of my favourite subjects has been waterfalls.

Yorkshire - Gods Own County - is blessed with many of these wonderful features, but since injuring my back several years ago, I find access to many of them difficult. 

Having read several books in order to try and find the easiest routes to many of them, I have come to the conclusion that most of the books written on the subject are specifically written for the Rambler/Walker and take more "Circular" paths to the falls.

I have compiled (And by no means complete!) a list of Waterfalls and will endeavour, given time and good health, to visit as many as possible, and provide details of the easiest ways in which to reach them including parking. 

Unfortunately many are on private property or due to the landscape, dangerous and impossible to reach.  

For guidance on Walking and Access to Land, see the Ramblers web page 
http://www.ramblers.org.uk/

There are , of course, many small waterfalls marked on the Ordnance Survey Maps that are not named, but if you have any that I have not listed please contact me with Names and Locations and any other details, either by E mail, AJKBeck@Gmail.com or on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Hoocher24

For clarification, I have decided that any Waterfall that is within the boundaries shown on this map will be recognised.

For those venturing out to visit these falls, remember!- Many are situated in deep steep valleys, extreme care should be taken if attempting to reach them!
