Spout Force waterfall lies in the beautiful Whinlatter Forest Park, a largely coniferous forest which was planted shortly after the First World War and which offers some superb scenery.
The waterfall can be seen from a viewing platform. Aiken Beck descends dramatically over a cliff of around a height of thirteen metres to drop into a plunge pool below.
