Waterfall Rock Falls - Long Preston

Waterfall Rock Falls - Long Preston

Not for the faint-hearted! This fall is only approx 2m in height and it involves a walk of over 2km to reach it, although most of it is down narrow lanes. 

Parking near the church is tight so it might be better to park at the near-by Boar's Head Pub just over the road off the busy A65 between Skipton & Settle. 
Pass through the church yard and follow the lane until you come to the final farm. Turn left through a gate and cross a small dry stone bridge crossing Newton Beck. 
Walk uphill into the gill & where the path splits, take the left fork. 
The waterfall takes its name from the rock at the side comprised of layered gritstone separated by bands of shale.
The waterfall itself has been dammed at the top to provide water to the farm buildings.

Waterfall Rock!
