The river stretches out along the valley and dramatically drops 30 metres.
The falls are a product of the Ice Age. Several thousand years ago, great rivers of ice ground down inside the valleys.
Nearby Bishopdale was ground deeper than Wensleydale and the River Ure had to drop a good distance to meet up with it, so the falls were formed.
The falls are free to view, but parking in the area is very limited apart from in the National Park Visitor Centre (just 100 metres from the falls themselves) which is pay-and-display.
Access is good via the well-maintained paths and the falls can be reached via wheelchair.
