It's easy to see why they called it 'High Force'. This dramatic waterfall on the River Tees may not be the tallest waterfall in the country, but it does have the largest volume of water falling in an unbroken drop. The whole river tumbles in full spate down the precipice, falling 21 metres before thundering into the plunge-pool below. The drop is sudden, and the falls are surrounded on either side by steep walls of rock. Clouds of misty rain fill the air, and on sunny days the light makes a rainbow over the basin - at least that's how Turner sketched it in 1816.

But this design shows High Force in late autumn, the water white and thrashing downwards, the surrounding forest a deep reddish-brown. Two walkers stand atop the falls, and a little dipper is perched on a wet rock - a wonderful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes!

Half Panama organic bleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
