Golitha Falls, River Fowey, Cornwall - May 17, 1984
The River Fowey photographed around Golitha Falls.
Golitha Falls are a series of spectacular cascades through a steep-sided valley gorge on the upper reaches of the River Fowey.
As the Fowey winds it way from its source on Bodmin Moor to its estuary at the harbour of Fowey(pronounced Foye) it passes through this picturesque wooded gorge between Draynes Bridge and Treverbyn Bridge.
Golitha Falls and the ancient woodland through which they flow is a National Nature Reserve of great importance for its lichens, liverwort and mosses. Over 50 species of liverwort grow here and 98 species of moss, some of which are quite rare. The reserve is open all year and is a free admission site.
