Shutterspots No. 2: Lumb Hole Falls

[rl_gallery id=”11070″]

Lumb Hole Falls is beautiful waterfall nestled in Crimsworth Dean, high above Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.  It is a wonderful natural bowl into which the waterfall pours below and old stone bridge.  There are many great vantage points to capture the main waterfall.   The public footpath which winds it’s way across the dean and crosses the waterfall over the stone bridge offers ample locations for capturing the falls without too much strenuous effort.

For those of a more adventurous nature it is possible to climb down a number of rocks and a small incline to stand in the bowl.  This location offers the ability to get a lovely shot, which shows the waterfall and the bridge together.  Be warned, I do recommend you take some wellies if you want to step out to the centre of the bowl!

Key Locations

See the google map below for some starting locations around Lumb Hole Falls.  These are my own choice locations, some of which are demonstrated in the main gallery.  As always, explore the location and make your own mark.  The map also includes a suggested car parking location (There is space for 2, possibly 3 cars but this location can be very busy on nice days and holidays)

Getting There

There is a small number of car parking spaces on Old Road above the falls.  There are main transport links into Hebden Bridge to the South and there are many walking routes up to the Falls.
