The lovely waterfall of Old Meggison, in the North Yorkshire Moors, otherwise known as Killdale Falls is located next to Kildale Hall Garth. Old Meggison lies on the River Leven as it flows down a narrow wooded ghyll in peaceful Mill Bank Wood. The waterfall has a drop of 0.03 kilometres and is situated along a long quiet road from Kildale around a kilometre from the village and around 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) to the south-east of Great Ayton
The Captain Cook Monument on the Cleveland Way Long Distance Footpath lies nearby and provides panoramic views along the curve of the Cleveland Hills, down into Great Ayton, across to Roseberry topping and back deep into the North Yorkshire Moors
Turn off the main road from Kildale towards the railway station and take the 1st turning on the right and proceed under the railway line. Continue on until you see a gateway on the left.
Park here, and climb the stile at the side of the gate. Continue down the footpath for approx 300m. It is possible to climb down to the bottom of the falls but care should be exercised in wet weather.
