Heng Lake Broadafalls
Broad Falls, Broada Falls
Outcrops on the slopes of the River Avon, beside Broad Falls. Crossing mentions this with the aforementioned name whilst Hemery embellishes it somewhat as Heng Lake Broadafalls.
For about three kilometres from the mire that is its head, the River Avon is sedate and a mere trickle with little to see apart from the remains of tinners works. As it passes into the bounds of Huntingdon Warren, it starts to get interesting, with large granite boulders strewn across the head of the valley at Heng Lake, feeding into the Avon from the right, which Crossing tells us; "flows out of the gully of that same name..."
Where the river turns left the scene is at its most dramatic as it enters Higher Bottom, with huge boulders strewn across the narrowing valley, but with the largest of them to the right bank below an exposed wall. Here the river cascades gently over the rocks and this is Broad Falls.
