An 1835 print from engraving ' DRAWN & ENGRAVED BY - Thomas Allom and H Bond ' Entitled:
BARROW FALL, NEAR DERWENTWATER
BARROW FALL is situated 2 miles South of KESWICK, and near DERWENTWATER in the English Lake District The Fall is to the rear of Barrow House, the seat of Joseph Pocklington "The descent of the stream is more perpendicular than that of Lowdore, and the smaller quantity of water is consequently displayed to greater advantage in the former. The total depth of the fall is about 122 feet. It is interrupted in its descent by a ledge of rocks, whence a 2nd fall carries the waters to the bottom of the precipice, and through a wooded glen to the Lake of Derwentwater. The same stream that feeds the Lowdore cataract provides a supply for this cascade. A pathway leads round the foot of the torrent to a flight of steps, by which the visitor ascends to a romantic summerhouse, and thence continues to the summit of the fall."
