The Strid
The River Wharfe, near Bolton Abbey, is forced through a narrow rock ravine resulting in a hectic rush of white water. The boy of Egremont supposedly tried to jump but was washed away. Even today this challenge is often not resisted with fatal results. Part of the Duke of Devonshire's Bolton Abbey Estate the Wharfe Valley provides exercise and relaxation for people from the West Yorkshire conurbations.
