Wessenden Head | Hidden Waterfall in Peak District, England

Updated: Jan 2

If you're doing the route to Pennine Way, then this waterfall is another one to visit. The waterfall isn't far from Wessenden Reservoir, and it can be spotted from the footpath.

Wessenden Head can be reached by a faint path, but is definitely worth the visit if you're in the area! The waterfall is most impressive after heavy rainfall, with the views of water cascading down and cutting through the hillside.


You'll have to descend down if you want a close up, and it can be quite muddy and slippery so it's up to you whether to see it properly or not!
