On a thread I started last year about Skelton Beck in the North East of England, Jim Pullen asked:Waterfall - (n) A cascade of water falling from a height, formed when a river or stream flows over a precipice or steep incline.
I finally went and had a look yesterday, and I was rather disappointed:Jim Pullen wrote:Worth it? I see there's one "waterfall" marked on the OS 1:25,000....BillAnderson wrote:Skelton Beck has been paddled.
For scale, the concrete stepping stones are about 20-24" tall!
I walked further up and downstream to see if there was anything else that could be classed as this Waterfall that's on the map, but nothing. There is a bit of a waterfall that trickles into the main stream, but that is just upstream of the railway bridge, and there is an artificial drop a little bit further upstream, but both couldn't be the waterfall referred to on the map due to their location.
So, anyone else trekked in to look at a waterfall they've seen on a OS map and been a bit disappointed? Or does anyone else have photos of other waterfalls that seem to fail to live up to their title?
