Geocache Description:

Short walk up over decent paths.

The Lodore Falls is where the beck that flows down the hanging valley of Watendlath tumbles over the edge into Borrowdale. This cataract is best seen after rain, but is worth seeing at any time. Access is by a gate from the road near the Lodore Hotel. Access may also be made from the road above, Ashness Road which leads to Watendlath. The main drop of the falls is about 90 feet. The Lakeland poet, Robert Southey wrote his famous poem 'How does the water come down at Lodore' in 1820 describing the falls with over 100 verbs - an excerpt:

From its sources which well
In the Tarn on the fell;
From its fountains
In the mountains,
Its rills and its gills;
Through moss and through brake,
It runs and it creeps
For awhile till it sleeps
In its own little Lake.

Small cache containing the usual swaps - Enjoy!
