This waterfall was taken on my walk yesterday with two friends. It is 97ft, the highest single-drop waterfall above ground in England. To see this fall, you have to go through the grounds of the Green Dragon Inn, for this, there is a charge of £2.50. I haven't been for a few years and there looks like there has been some maintenance done to the footpaths etc. There is a sign saying that walking behind the fall is 'strictly prohibited' but the footpath round the back of the fall has been improved since I was last here so it looks like it has been improved specifically for that purpose! All the photographs you see in books of it, don't give an impression of scale because they don't include any people but I have done, here, so you can see how huge it is. You can walk round the waterfall and cross back over the stream via some new bridges that have been constructed. There is a campsite nearby, and in summer brass band concerts used to be held here....not sure if they still do that?
