Clampitt Falls

These form part of the Canonteign Falls which are about five miles north north east of Hennock in Devon, England - believed to be the highest falls in England.

They are situated half way up the cliff face and were created by Clampitt brothers in the 19th Century to create a good head of water for the sawmill situated below. The mill used to produce equipment for the silver and lead mine which was active in the period 1856 to 1880.
