This wonderful photograph was taken by one of our customers on our walk on Kinder Scout last Sunday.
 
Kinder Downfall is the tallest waterfall in the Peak District, with a 30-metre fall.  It lies on the River Kinder, where it flows over the edge of Kinder Scout.  Although usually little more than a trickle in summer, after heavy rain it is quite impressive.  Last Sunday there was a strong wind which funnelled up the clough and the water was blown back up as it started to descend.  
 
We could feel the resulting cloud of spray from a long way back as we approached the Downfall along the banks of the River Kinder.
