Langstrothdale - River Wharfe
At the very beginnings of the river Wharfe in Langstrothdale there can be found numerous small, but pleasant falls along this stretch of the river.
Starting at Deepdale bridge you have 2 options -
1/ Park the car just after Deepdale Bridge and walk back around over the bridge then following the Dales Way as far as Beckermond, then return, this way give access to many of the small falls and places where the limestone narrows forming tight channels. A walk of approx 2.5 miles round trip.
2/ Drive up, following the course of the river. The only downside to this is the lack of access and available parking once the road leaves the riverside. However it does then give you the opportunity to continue up as far as Oughtershaw.
|Falls at Oughtershaw, not a lot of water in them at the time.|
