Stainforth Force (Waterfall)
Stainforth Force and Packhorse Bridge
At Stainforth Force, just west of Stainforth village, the River Ribble tumbles over a series of cascades.
In autumn, salmon can often be seen leaping on their final journey upriver to their spawning grounds.
Just above Stainforth Force, a former monastic road crosses the Ribble on a Pack Horse Bridge that was built in 1675 and is now owned by the National Trust.
Stainforth Force is a popular spot for a picnic and paddle during the summer months. But, if you don't like crowds, it's best avoided on sunny weekends and bank holidays.
