Thornton Force Waterfall by Nilfanion

Thornton Force is one of the most popular waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales and the finest of the many waterfalls seen on the Ingleton Waterfalls Walk. Dropping 46ft over a limestone cliff, Thornton Force is a stunning sight when it bursts in to view. Situated in an open air rocky ampitheatre Thornton Force is more than just an impressive waterfall. It is partly formed from rocks over 300 million years old. Indeed there are number of layers to the rock behind the falls and it is possible, within the span of one hand to measure over 170 million years of geological evolution. (Ingleton, England)
