West Burton Falls

A short walk from the West Burton's pretty village green brings you to this shady spot with its small waterfall and the remains of the town mill. It is known as Cauldron Falls because of the beautiful plunge pool, and was one of the spots painted by Turner on his travels in the Dales.

Look out for water-loving birds such as the bobbing dipper with its white breast and for different varieties of wagtails darting about catching insects for their young.

Footpaths from here take you right up onto the towering fellside if you are feeling fit.
