A short drive off the A171 – in between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay – lays Falling Foss, one of the most well known waterfalls in the North York Moors. Visitors to this very unique landmark can follow a 2 mile walking route which takes them through some of the most peaceful and tranquil areas to be found in North Yorkshire.
Our images of Falling Foss aim to capture some of this ambience and tranquillity along with some of the area’s natural beauty. The 67ft waterfall is located in the heart of Little Beck Wood, along a wooded valley route that is routinely used by long distance coast to coast walkers among others.
As one of North Yorkshire’s more frequently visited natural features, Falling Foss has a place in the hearts and minds of both tourists and residents in the area. This is a passion that we share at the North Yorkshire Gallery and our landscape photographer Laurie Smithies has visited the area extensively in order to produce images that truly reflect the unique qualities at Falling Foss.
