Waterfall is a small Staffordshire village, set on the moors, named after the way that the River Hemp, disappears underground through crevices in the ground.

Once the start of a narrow gauge railway starting on the main Leek-Ashbourne railway line, and going via Wetton to Hume End (The Manifold Valley Light Railway). The line has since been removed and now the track is a well used tourist trail for walkers and cyclists (The Manilfild Trail).

The village has a Norman church, rebuilt in the 19th C, although the Norman Chancel has been retained.
