High Force Waterfall, United Kingdom

High Force Waterfall in Durham County is one of the famous water falls in England. Falling from a height of 70 feet on River Tees it is the highest uninterrupted waterfall (not highest) in United Kingdom. The whole river comes down from the steep rocky edge in two steps which even freezes during the winter days.

Other than the Fall, the walk along with the track following to the place really gives a variety of views at every node.
