Janet's Foss
Janet's Foss
Foss is the old Scandinavian word for a waterfall or force and Janet (or Jennet), queen of the local fairies, according to legend lives in a cave behind the waterfall. The cave was formed by limestone bedrock being dissolved and eroded by the action of the water.
Janet's Foss is a small waterfall near the village of Malham. It carries Gordale Beck over a limestone outcrop into a deep pool below.
