Walked 19.07.2023 - The start of this walk is mainly on a wide track with high hedges either side so there is little to see at the start. It does however get you to the Waterfalls and it is worth paying the entrance fee to go to the falls. The waterfalls are stunning and you can walk right up to them, even dipping your feet in the water right below! There are toilets at the falls and a rather nice cafe and nature reserve. Updates sent in to reflect some changes so should all be correct as of August 2023.
