Todays plan was to visit High Force via the tourist path as well as the Pennine Way to get a couple of perspectives on this magnificent waterfall. Afterwards we headed down the road just a mile or so to Gibsons Cave and Summerhill Waterfall before heading over the Pennines to Appleby in Westmoorland.
