Pictures of Forest-in-Teesdale
This is one of County Durham's loveliest areas. It's landscape, possessed of a wild untamed beauty, highlighted by the meandering River Tees, has a few ancient farmhouses and old stone cottages.
The region also has the awesome sight of one of England's highest waterfalls, High Force, whose silvery waters rush in a shattering crescendo towards the deep waters of the lake. The slabs surrounding the falls appear to have been perfectly placed for sitting and contemplating for a while, enjoying the leap and splash of the water. In the distance the eye is drawn towards the daunting grey-blue dolerite crags and further along the Tees is the swiftly flowing Cauldron Snout which lies immediately below the dam of the Cow Green Reservoir. This pretty watery stretch of over 200 yards, lies between grassed and rocky crags, and is more of a meandering cataract than waterfall. Nonetheless, despite a 3 mile hike from the carpark at the reservoir, Cauldron Snout acts as a magnate for the hordes of visitors descending annually on the upper reaches of Teesdale.
Forest-in-Teesdale is idyllic, tranquil walking country where you can wander at will, gazing at natures wonders. It is on the Pennine way and is close to Langdon Beck and Maize Beck, with Black Hill and Outberry Plain in the distance.
Visitors wishing to explore the region will find a scattering of good hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast, and at Langdon Beck there is a Youth Hostel.
