Cauldron Snout

It was a lovely sunny day but with a chill wind as we set off from Cow Green Reservoir for an 8 mile walk with 960ft of ascent. We had a couple of miles of road walking before we could connect with the Pennine Way on the banks of the River Tees. We then had a wonderful 5 mile walk in the shadow of Cronkley Scar before arriving at the spectacular waterfalls at Cauldron Snout. It is reputed to be the longest waterfall in the country at 200 yards and the highest at 200ft and really must be seen to be believed. My pictures don’t do it justice. We then had a scramble up the side of the waterfall to reach the reservoir access road leading back to the car. The weather seems set to take a turn for the worse so this was a fitting walk with which to end our visit to Upper Teesdale.
