High Force Waterfall, County Durham

High Force is the highest waterfall in England. It majestically carries the river Tees from its birthplace on Cross Fell (the highest point on the Pennine Way) down through the villages of Teesdale. It has been used many times over for dramatic effect in films and television, most amusingly in the 1969 western, Mackenna's Gold.

High Force (20 metres high) is not the highest waterfall in England. Cautley Spout, in Cumbria's Howgill Fells, is nearly 180 metres high. Hardraw Force, in North Yorkshire, has an unbroken drop of 30 metres (100 feet). Source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Force
