Janet’s Foss is a lovely waterfall and pool near to Gordale Scar and Malham Cove.
The waterfall is named after a legendary fairy queen who supposedly inhabited a cave behind the waterfall! I have never seen her but am convinced she is really there!
Gordale Beck (sometimes called Malham Beck) runs from Gordale Scar over Janet’s Foss and a limestone outcrop and then down into Malham and adds to the formation of River Aire.
The pool was originally used for sheep dipping and washing!
