Janet's Foss

Janet's Foss is a small waterfall in the vicinity of the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England. It carries Gordale Beck over a limestone outcrop into a deep pool below. The name Janet (sometimes Jennet) is thought to be a folk tale reference to a fairy queen, held to inhabit a cave at the rear of the fall. Foss is a Nordic word for waterfall, still used in Scandinavia, and is presented in a number of cases in England as 'force'

I am glad you've explained foss & force John, they were always a mystery on my northern journeys
John Prior: I did not know that either, until I did a little research, makes one wonder how one lived without the web smile
