High Force is one of the most impressive
waterfalls in England. The River Tees has been
plunging into this gorge for thousands of years
but the rocks it reveals are far more ancient –
with origins dating back over 300 million years!
The River Tees suddenly drops 21 metres over
the Whin Sill into a plunge pool below. A gentle
and pretty woodland walk leads you to the
viewing area at the base of the waterfall.
High Force is a sight to behold as well as an
ideal place to stop for a picnic and a base for
exploring Teesdale and the North Pennines
by car, bike or on foot.
