Ashgill Force

If driving from south, drive over the stone bridge and park just round the bend on a layby. Walk back over the bridge, (looking over the side on the right above the fall) and take the public access path on the right. Follow the path along and down to stone steep until you reach a path on the right that lead you back towards a cave, climb down through the cave, taking care as it can be slippery. once through the cave you should be able to see the 50ft Ashgill force in front of you. Walk up towards it and you can ever walk behind it when its not in flood. Make you way down to the beck below and follow it down stream. You can have a paddle under the big waterfall first if you wish. further down stream, you will find many smaller waterfalls with deep pools below them. some are easy to jump off and some can be a bit trickier as you need to judge the jump into the narrower parts of the gorge. (Always go down and feel about in the water before jumping!) There is a small fall that is suitable for sliding although I would recommend a wetsuit for this as it may be a bit rough on bare skin .Some pools are unsuitable for jumping from the top of the fall and there are plenty of shallow parts along the river. Have fun, Be safe and please post lots of pictures 😀

The area is very popular with gorge scrambling groups, so If there are any minibuses parked up top, expect a group to be down there already
