Kennall Vale Nature Reserve is a beautiful woodland walk which features old ruins from the gun powder factory which has been left to nature. There are plenty of waterfalls to see, some small and some fast flowing.

Kennall Vale is a great place for a scenic walk with decent pathways and is a photographers dream location! It's surrounded by mini waterfalls and historic buildings, and is a good destination to spend a few hours.

Amazing walks, plenty of waterfalls, so therapeutic and mostly safe paths. Would definitely go again. There's no car park but there's always spaces around the village. – Google Review

Overall, Kennall Vale is a place of great atmosphere; featuring wet bright mosses and overhanging trees suddenly give way to the remains of old stone buildings and waterfalls. It can get muddy so we recommend bringing walking boots.
