Catrigg Force

A hidden gem, this waterfall lies deep within a wooded gorge and is a perfect secluded spot loved by everyone who finds it. The composer Edward Elgar had friends in Settle and, it is said, enjoyed the walk up to Catrigg Force whenever he visited.

Catrigg Force is found a short distance from the village of Stainforth, just north of Settle, where there is a National Park car park. From the same car park it is also only a short walk to Stainforth Force - another dramatic waterfall.
