Middle Black Clough Waterfall in the Peak District is an amazing location for families to explore, with many interesting streams leading up to the falls, the perfect place for a spot of pond dipping.
Middle Black Clough can be found at the end of the Longdendale Valley. It’s a short walk (20-30 mins) from a free car parking area just off the A628 Woodhead Road. it’s a secluded spot that millions pass by each year without realising it is there.
There are actually three Black Cloughs – Near, Far and Middle. It is Middle Black Clough which is home to an impressive 10m waterfall. There is a lovely walk by the side of the clough through the trees leading to the waterfall. Note that you need to cross the river to get to the waterfall, so wear suitable footwear and use caution – especially after heavy rainfall when the river may be impassable.
