For this walk with Ronnie we parked on the small track road leading to St Catherine’s Church, postcode CA19 1TG. Begin by walking down towards the church, and cross over the river via the stepping stones. Turn right after crossing and follow the easy path down, crossing a footbridge over Stanley Ghyll, until you come to a fork in the path. Take the left path, and follow this, which leads you all the way to the bottom of the waterfalls. To get to the bottom, you cross a series of footbridges, the sight after the third is magnificent, and noisy!
Beware, as the the paths can become slippy and narrow in some places. As we were with Ronnie, we turned around after the third footbridge, and retraced our steps back to the car, stopping first for a picnic lunch on the picnic benches mid way, however you can (if with quite older children) follow one of the paths up to the top of the falls.
