Beautiful Scaleber Force in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a popular spot for photography, the fall lies on Scalaber Beck and are convenienly situated by the side of the Settle to Airton road. The drop on the waterfall measures around 40 feet long, with a set of weir like terraces and spouts and is surrounded by a dense copse with old knarled trees and moss-covered stones. There is something almost Tolkein-like about Scaleber Force as it tumbles into the narrow gorge along moss laden ledges on it's journey to join the River Ribble.
There is easy access with parking directly next to the top of the falls. The falls can be accessed from two paths, one runs directly to the bottom of the main falls, the second runs down to the lower falls where it is possible to capture the smaller falls in front of the main drop.
Scalaber Force lies around a mile from the market town of Settle heading along High Hill Lane toward Malham. Make sure to keep right at the fork in the road and look out for a small copse of trees on the left hand side of the road which mark the falls, they appear shortly before a steep dip in the road.
A stile crosses over a drystone wall and leads onto a short, but very steep, descent down rocky steps to the base of the waterfall.
