On 5th Feb 2011 we took a leisurely drive to Wensleydale and Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in N England.
Wensleydale was a problem as the recent heavy rain had caused flooding and cut several roads.Our short journey over Buttertubs pass from Hawes in Wensleydale became a long journet all down Wensletdale and over the back roads to Reeth and up Swaledale,
At the head of the Dale we came across these falls on the River Swale.(A Force or Foss is derived from the Old Norse for waterfall)
It was lashing with rain ,so this shot was taken from inside the car.I have never seen this small waterfall so full.The water colour here is very different from my Lake District rivers and streams.It’s to do with the minerals.
