Fall South Wood, Loftus

Originally believed to be the waterfall in Espiner’s (Hancock’s) wood, our postcard view is undated; but is possibly from the early 1900s. Jonathan suggested: “This waterfall maybe in Handale wood.” Bryan Richardson has confirmed with: “This waterfall is the one in Handale Wood about 300 yards towards Handale from Slaters Banks. The waterfall in Espiner’s wood is flatter than the one in Handale. The railway embankment would also be in the background in Espiner’s. The waterfall is now about one meter lower than it is in the photograph.”
