Where to park
Once you arrive in Malham village, you will see the Pay & Display visitor car park on the left, this also has public conveniences which are free of charge. These can come in handy after a long drive, well they do for me anyway, lol.
If the main car park is full, there is free parking on the road into Malham and also another car park further past the main visitor car park.
The Route to Janets Foss Waterfall
Leave the Car park and turn left and head towards The Malham Smithy. The Malham Smithy is a blacksmiths art shop run by a lady called Annabelle Bradley, sadly I wasn’t able to meet her or see inside when I visited Malham due to Covid-19 restrictions, so rest assured I will be back and definitely pay her a visit very soon.
Once you reach the Malham Smithy turn right and walk over the little bridge and onto the little pathway that goes to the right, you will now be walking more or less back on your self. You will come to a kissing gate ( there are quite a few on this walk) Follow the pathway that is sign posted Janets foss.
The Paths to Janets Foss are easy walking, and well maintained. You will walk approximately 1.5 mile in total to get to Janets Foss itself. The view once there is quite breathtaking and well worth the walk.
It is now time for a picnic and a flask of coffee, but don’t fear if you don’t have a picnic with you as the next part of the walk to Gordale Scar has a mobile sandwhich shop on the way 😉
