England's Largest Waterfall

There are at least five claimants to this title, and the Pennine Way visits three of them.

Cauldron Snout is on the upper reaches of the River Tees, in the North Pennines AONB. To quote Wikipedia, it's "more a long cataract than a waterfall, and at 200 yards (180 m) long, reckoned to be the longest waterfall in England." It has a total drop of 60 metres (200 feet), but no single drop worthy of any note.

England's most impressive waterfall is probably High Force, which is further down the Tees (still in the North Pennines AONB). Its total drop is only 29 metres, but (again quoting Wikipedia) "[it] does have the largest volume of water falling over an unbroken drop when in full spate". Wikipedia also notes however that "Despite popular belief that [High Force] is the highest waterfall in England, at 71 feet (22 m), others have a longer fall."

Hardraw Force, in Wensleydale, has the longest single drop of any English waterfall above ground, at 30 metres (105 feet).

The highest single drop in any English waterfall is below ground - in Gaping Gill, on the slopes of Ingleborough, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Fell Beck drops into the cave in an unbroken cascade of 110 metres (360 feet).

England's highest waterfall is Cautley Spout, in the Howgill Fells (traditionally in the West Riding of Yorkshire, but now in Cumbria, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park) with a total drop of 198 metres (650 feet).
