Waterfall In Barnard Castle, County Durham
At 180m it is the longest waterfall in the UK and is fed from Cow Green Reservoir.
Many will ponder the tallest waterfall in England, but have you ever wondered which is the longest? Ponder no more as Cauldron Snout is the longest waterfall in England at 180m on the upper reaches of the River Tees. (However some may say it's more of a cataract).
The snout gets its water from the nearby Cow Green Reservoir where the water runs over a dam wall and then pretty much straight down into the waterfall.
The waterfall also sits on the boundary between Cumbria and County Durham and within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
It's around a 3km walk from the car park at the reservoir, but all on tarmacked roads. However if you really want to see the falls from the bottom in all its glory then you will have to do a bit of scrambling down the hillside.
Canny view from the bridge too!
When you're ready, just retrace your steps back to the car park with fine views over the reservoir.

What three words
Only nearby parking is at the Cow Green Reservoir. There is a fee to pay using your mobile, but there is no connection there either. We just had to leave a note on the car and then pay later when we got a connection.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Places from Simon
