This is Scaleber Force and is located only a few miles to the south west of the impressive limestone amphitheatre of Malham Cove, on the B road between Airton and Settle.
There is limited parking at the side of the road, but the few times that I have visited this location, I have had no trouble getting parked up.
Scaleber is located right next to the road, so there are no major hikes involved in reaching the location. Access is via a steepish but quite manageable descent into the ravine - sturdy shoes should be worn (care must be taken as the rocks can be quite slippy at the bottom)
The falls are pretty much south facing and flanked by steep ravine sides to the west and east. Due to its aspect, lighting can be a little tricky so the best time of day to take photos is probably around midday when the sun is behind you. This should maximise the light entering the ravine and give you more scope for photo opportunities ....
