Stainforth Foss

Located on the River Ribble beneath Stainforth Village, Stainforth Foss/Stainforth Force is a beautiful waterfall - which makes a popular walking destination but is perhaps most famous for the annual salmon jumping spectacle (around October time).

Stainforth Foss can be seen by those taking on the Ribble Way, or can be incorporated as part of shorter walks from Settle, Langcliffe or Stainforth.

The pools below the Foss are popular with wild swimmers and the area is usually busy on sunny days.
