Cottingley Beck

This is Cottingley Beck as it is today. The waterfall which enchanted the girls still runs at the bottom of the garden but is now overlooked by modern housing.

When seeing the beck for the first time it is easy to understand why the girls spent so many hours playing there. The magical sound of the waterfall provides an ambience which draws you away from the daily chores of city life and you can't help but wonder if there was any truth in the tales.

Unfortunately the beck has been affected by time and part of the stream has been fenced off. A recent ruling declared that the site was too dangerous for public access after years of tours and visitors.

Please bear in mind that the land is on private property.
