Walking Log ... Walks including "Cautley Spout"


Cautley Spout
Located a few miles north of Sedburgh, this is the highest waterfall in England above ground (Gaping Gill falls further, but into a hugh pothole). Instead of one long drop, Cautley Spout is made up of a series of waterfalls cascading down the mountain side for over 600 feet.

The falls are a spectacular sight, especially if approached from the direction of the Cross Keys Temperance Inn, where they can be admired for over a kilometre of walking as they get ever closer. The climb up the side is quite steep, but well worth the effort.
