Catrigg Force is an absolute gem - a magical, mysterious place!

The waterfall is hidden from view in a small secluded copse one mile upstream of Stainforth village.

The main waterfall has a vertical drop of about 6 metres into a lovely step pool.



This secluded spot was one of Elgar’s favourite places and he drew inspiration from the Yorkshire Dales to compose his most famous works - the Enigma Variations and Pomp and Circumstance.
