Visit the Dales


Linton Falls

Just a five minute walk downhill from Grassington car park. If there has been plenty of rain then standing on the bridge overlooking the falls thundering beneath can be quite scary! They formed where a fault in the earth's crust shifted millions of years ago, raising the limestone rocks to the north up higher than those to the south.

The nearby weirs once channelled water into a large textile mill, now demolished. Find out more about it on our Out of Oblivion website. Upstream of the Falls you will be able to see the restored hydro-electric plant. This had shut down in the 1940s and fallen into ruin, but was restored and re-opened in 2012 and is was more supplying electricity through water power.
