Stanley Ghyll is, "one of the finest waterfall ravines in the Lake District". (https://designatedsites.naturalengland.org.uk/PDFsForWeb/Citation/1000018.pdf). The humid, sheltered conditions within the 10 hectare Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) protect a rich community of mosses, lichen, liverwort and notable rare ferns. Birker Beck, the waterfall and adjacent woodlands form the most important habitat for these plants in southwest Lakeland. The awe-inspiring landscape and unusual biodiversity motivated exploration en masse and Stanley Ghyll became a popular destination for tourism and artistic endeavour in the late Georgian and early Victorian eras.
