Thomason Foss | Beck Hole
Thomason Foss Waterfall (Beck Hole Waterfall) is one of the easier waterfalls to get to. Located between Goathland and Beck Hole, it is situated in a small ravine and you will often see Wagtails and Dippers along this stretch of river and maybe even Adders if you’re lucky. The path has some steep sections, steps and rocky parts as well as plenty of muddy areas but once you reach the falls there is plenty of space to set up with your camera for long exposure shots like these taken in Autumn and summer.

Upper Thomason Foss | Beck Hole
Water Arc Foss or Upper Thomason Foss is one of the more spectacular waterfalls. Situated upstream from Thomason Foss it can be tricky to reach especially in Autumn and Spring when it’s muddy and slippy. You can also reach it by walking downstream from Goathland. A lot of people tend to walk upstream from Thomason Foss but either way it can be treacherous as the paths are very narrow with some steep drops. The best times to try and reach it would be late Spring or early Autumn when the rivers are flowing well. View On Google Maps.
Mallyan Spout | Goathland
Mallyan Spout is the most famous and relatively accessible of the Waterfalls in the area. At nearly 60ft tall this impressive waterfall has a well used trail to the bottom of the falls but it does involve some steps and some clambering over rocks which can be very slippery. The footpath starts along side the Mallyan Spout Hotel and then just follow the signs to the waterfall. It’s most impressive after recent rain in Spring or Autumn, in Summer it may be more of a trickle but still worth a visit. View On Google Maps.
Falling Foss Waterfall | Little Beck
Falling Foss can be easily viewed from the Falling Foss cafe and there is a car park at the top of the falls. If you want a bit of a walk you can also park in Little Beck and follow the path along the river. To get down to the falls themselves there isn’t an actual path but you will see on the path to Little Beck where people have been using a steep mud bank to climb down. If you actually go down to the river be prepared to wade through a lot of mud and water. View On Google Maps.
Nelly Ayre Foss | Goathland
Nelly Ayre Foss waterfall is situated just outside Goathland. If you are a keen walker you can follow the path along the river from Mallyan Spout and reach it that way. If not you can park about a mile or so outside of Goathland. If you follow the road away from Goathland you will eventually head down a steep hill with a house on the corner and you can join the footpath a bit nearer to the falls. You can follow the footpath across the moor following the stone wall. After a while the wall ends and there is a path on your right down towards the river. Once again there is a steep decent down to the waterfall with some steps and a narrow track. View On Google Maps.
Darnholm Stepping Stones | Goathland
It's not a very big waterfall but it's always fun to visit Darnholm Stepping Stones just outside Goathland. You can follow the road out of Goathland or I like the circular walk from Goathland Train Station which has some great views of the North York Moors Railway steam trains if you time it right and depending on the river level it can still be a great place for some long exposure photography.

Old Megginson Falls | Kildale
Old Megginson Falls or Kildale Falls is located near the village of Kildale in private woodland. There is a concessionary path overlooking the river but access down to the falls themselves is now fenced off and they have to be viewed from path above. It looks like this is a recent change as I have seen other photos taken from right next to the falls. The layby area for parking was also fenced off but luckily we had done the circular walk from the Captain Cook Monument. View On Google Maps.
