Lydford Gorge, Dartmoor
Last summer was a whirlwind of adventures with my friend Sarah. I’ve got so many photos stockpiled that I don’t even know where to begin! One of our first trips was to Lydford Gorge on Dartmoor, the deepest gorge in the South West and home to the 30ft Whitelady waterfall. The sun was shining and the wildflowers were in full bloom, making the trek through the forest especially lovely. The path winds down the gorge in long sweeping loops, the sound of crashing water getting louder the further you descend. The waterfall itself is beautiful. It falls in an almost straight line, like a streamer of white silk ribbon that’s been let down from the canopy above. We sat by the pools and ate our lunch, basking in the early summer warmth.
