Where to Photograph Waterfalls in England

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Waterfalls within England.  This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.

This list is alphabetical by name of Waterfall, however if you are travelling to an area we know it can be useful to find out which waterfalls you might be able to visit, so we have also produced this list as Waterfalls by County. For those who are interested in the Lake District we also have a specific list aimed at the Waterfalls of the Lake District.

Codes: FC = Forestry Commission, Wiki = Wikipedia, NT = National Trust, BE = Britain Express
