Jesmond Dene Waterfall

Waterfall In Jesmond Dene, Tyne And Wear

A pretty artificial waterfall in Jesmond Dene created by Lord Armstrong.

Follow the Ouseburn through Jesmond Dene and you will encounter many water features including waterfalls, ponds, wells and weirs. These were created by Lord Armstrong as part of his landscaping to bring movement to the water.

The waterfall you see here was probably his biggest project. Explosives were used to create the downstream deep gorge and the expulsed rock was used to build up the sides of the waterfall.

If you look carefully you can see holes in the rocks where they were lifted in place and cement holding them together.

Sit on the bridge for a moment and ponder life while watching this charming waterfall. Don't forget to check out the nearby Old Mill.

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.
