Foss Gill

Foss Gill

If you ever visit Malham in the Yorkshire Dales, either to see the world famous Cove, Gordale Scar or the waterfall at Janets Foss, then you will have probably gone through the village of Airton. 

Not far from here is a small but pleasant set of falls on Foss Gill.

Take the right hand turn to Calton (NOT Carlton!) and drive to the end of Kell Syke Lane (Approx 900 meters)
Leave the car and take the lane that journeys off to the left. 
Cross the ford (or take the small bridge) and continue until you reach the wooden bench. 
The track turns left through a gate, before entering the field and proceeding up hill, however you should ignore this and follow the course of the stream behind the bench for another 100m (approx). 
Here you will find the falls, a bit of scrambling and paddling may be required depending on the amount of water but they are worth a visit.



Don't go through the Gate, follow the stream behind the bench!
