Location : Keswick / Grange – Grid Ref : NY 265188
Lodore Falls are located behind the Lodore Falls Hotel near the Grange end of Derwentwater. The waterfall, a must for Victorian tourists staying at Keswick, is formed by the beck from Watendlath Tarn cascading over huge boulders for a distance of some 100 feet. Although the falls are spectacular after periods of heavy rain, they dry to a trickle in periods of prolonged dry weather.
Robert Southey’s famous onomatopeic poem ‘How does the water come down at Lodore’ is, of course, written about these falls.
The falls are on private property, but an honesty box has been provided.
