High Force
High Force
High Force, located at Forest-in-Teesdale, though not the highest, is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in England.

From its rise as a trickle, high on the heather covered fells at the top of the North Pennines, to the top of the whin sill rock at Forest -in-Teesdale, the River Tees steadily grows and gathers pace, then suddenly and spectacularly, the whole of the River plunges over a precipice and drops 71 feet (21 metres) into the plunge pool below.

The waterfall is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and European Geopark
