Horton Gill Force

Horton Gill Force

Horton Gill Force is situated in Horton Gill, a small stream located immediately to the north of the Cam High Road as it passes below Crag.

The waterfall is located on private land and is not visible either from the Cam High Road or the Countersett to Burtersett road which is also nearby. I was incredibly lucky that when I passed by a farmer had just pulled up to the barn above Horton Gill Bridge. Asking permission to hop over the wall to take a picture of the waterfall below the bridge he said there was a better one further up and directed me to follow the blue hose to the waterfall! Needless to say I didn’t hesitate to take up the offer to view the waterfall.

It is a fine little waterfall in a steep sided section of the gill. I was doubly lucky in that I visited the waterfall after rain so there was a fair amount of water coming down the hills. After a dry spell I can imagine this particular waterfall being reduced to a trickle. Below Horton Gill Bridge there is another waterfall that can be seen from the road. On my visit the waters of Horton Gill seemed to be fairly gushing out from below the bridge.
