Cauldron Snout is a waterfall on the upper reaches of the River Tees in Northern England, immediately below the dam of the Cow Green Reservoir. It is well upstream of the High Force waterfall, and is on the boundary between County Durham and Cumbria, England. The waterfall lies within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and European Geopark.
It is more a long cataract than a waterfall, and at 200 yards (180 m) long, reckoned to be the longest waterfall in England.
It is impressive by the scale of the British landsape, and attracts a lot of visitors, despite the 3-kilometre (1.9 mi) walk from the nearest carpark (at Cow Green Reservoir). No fee is payable as of 2013[update]. The Pennine Way takes in Cauldron Snout.
