DIRECTIONS; One issue is that it isn't the easiest to find. After a fire a few years ago the attraction was closed by the council. As such the already existing paths can be over grown and not easily accessible. This means that the paths used...More

After reading some mixed reviews about the lack of water from the waterfall, the amount of rubbish and the poor access, I can say that the water is falling again into the pool below. Yes there is a little rubbish but really not much. Access...More

Perfect example of how human activity like diverting water can totally destroy a once beautiful place. Not only there is no water, but there's litter all over, stinking terribly. Can't get what for keeping all the beautiful pics here on TA if that's no longer...More

This was a beautiful place three years ago, but suddenly the river stopped running! This was always a possibility in the summer but not in March after a lot of rain. The water has been diverted somewhere upstream but the council have done nothing. In...More
