Janet's Foss Waterfall image

Janet's Foss is a small but wonderful waterfall and pool near Gordale Scar in Malhamdale, nestled in a magical wood along the footpath from Malham Village toward Gordale Scar.

The footpath from Malham starts from Malham Smithy, over the small clapper bridge behind the Smithy with Miresfield Farm B&B in front of you then turn right along the side of the beck, through a few fields and kissing gates and into the wood.

The footpath follows Malham Beck and during summer you can smell the wild garlic in the wood, you may even pass a money tree!. Stop and admire the Foss, paddle or even swim or at least let the dog have a splash. The footpath then continues past the Foss onto the road and right towards the Tea Van and then through the campsite on to Gordale Scar.
