Forest of Bowland waterfalls are not as well known as the Yorkshire Dales and such, but there a few nice ones dotted around. When I come across them I will put them on this page, with directions.
Gisburn Forest Waterfall
Gisburn Forest Waterfall on Bottoms Beck is a tricky one to get to, so be careful, but it is worthwhile when you get to it. A very tranquil place indeed.
Hornby Road Waterfall
Described by Wainwright as one of the finest moorland paths in the country, Hornby Road runs for about 10km from Hornby to Slaidburn. This waterfall is just off the main track.
Lanshaw Brook Waterfall
Approx 1.5k northwest of Slaidburn this waterfall is easy to get to, although it is about 150m off the track so respect the land.
Just a short distance from the road, accessed by a footbridge and next to a memorial garden. This is nice little waterfall but access for photography is a little tricky.
Scarloom Waterfall near Holden is a lovely, fast flowing waterfall on Holden Beck, which eventually joins the River Ribble near Sawley.
Just a little up Town End (road) from Hark to Bounty is this weir. It stretches across Croasdale Brook and was once used for a Corn Mill.
Smelt Mill Waterfall
More of big ditch really – and my camera ran out of battery after a couple of photos. I will go back when I’m passing.
Under the bridge at Whitehough is this weir. Google says it’s on White Hough Water, Ordnance Survey calls it Pendle Water. There is another one nearby at Roughlee that I need to visit, here.
