Middle Black Clough Waterfall | Hidden Waterfall in Peak District, England

Updated: Jan 2

An amazing place to visit in the Peak District with one of the best hidden waterfalls to see! You have to do a little exploring to find it; follow the river upstream and you'll eventually hear it before you see it. If there's been heavy rainfall the night before, you may even be lucky enough to have a quick dip!

Middle Black Clough Waterfall really is something out of a fairy tale! The main waterfall however which you see in the photos requires a bit of scrambling down as it is very steep and quite dangerous so please take extra care. It's definitely worth the scramble once you get to the bottom as you can see!

Absolutely stunning location! Loved the adventure up to the waterfall. Its quite off the beaten path... But really worth it. You feel like a kid again adventuring! Don't be shy... get in the waterfall! Feels fantastic! – Google Review

We explored Middle Black Clough Waterfall on a raindy day so the river was very high and flowing fast (which is perfect weather for viewing waterfalls!).


We recommend appropriate footwear if you want to cross the river in some parts due to there not being many bridges. You also have to go to the top for some of the most amazing views!
