What a stunning location Golitha Falls (pronounced 'Goleetha') is - the River Fowey cascades over rocks beneath moss-covered Beech Trees. Ferns abound in this beautiful shady place. I love to photograph it in the Autumn, but I like being here at any time of the year. Our prints are printed by Tony Howell here in Cornwall for authenticity (except largest sizes)
The Golitha Falls are a series of spectacular cascades and waterfalls along a section of the River Fowey, as it makes its way through the ancient oak woodland. It is one of the best-known beauty spots on Bodmin Moor.
Golitha Falls is a National Nature Reserve (NNR) managed by English Nature.
The river itself is home to various fish including salmon and sea trout, whilst otters are frequently seen here. As the Fowey winds it's way from the source on Bodmin Moor to it's estuary at the harbour of Fowey(pronounced Foy), it passes through this picturesque wooded gorge.
The reserve contains some open meadows but mostly consists of Sessile oak and mixed oak and ash woodland. In one area of the reserve is an avenue of old Beech trees.
