We took the dog do a walk around the waterfall. It was a great afternoon out. It was muddy and very cold but great fun. The views were stunning!

Visited the Bridge and falls as part of a day out on the steam railway. Don’t forget your camera as the sight if fantastic and words cannot describe the power of the water system.
