Canonteign Falls Waterfalls, Bovey Tracey, Dartmoor National Park

At 220 feet, Lady Exmouth Falls is the highest waterfall in England.

A circular walking trail runs from the shop and cafe by the entrance to Canonteign to the bottom of the falls. From there, the trail climbs steeply through gardens to a viewing platform appropriately named Buzzard's View. The view from Buzzard's View at the top of Lady Exmouth Falls is superb.

The trail then winds back down to the main lake, shop and cafe.

Lady Exmouth Falls is named after the 3rd Lady Exmouth who had a leat diverted to form the falls when a couple of local mines closed down. This makes Lady Exmouth Falls the highest artificial waterfall in England.

Lady Exmouth Falls is one of three waterfalls at Canonteign. Collectively, they are referred to as Canonteign Falls Waterfalls. Clampitt Falls is below Lady Exmouth Falls. The Secret Garden Falls are a little further east.
