Small weir at the mouth of Scalby Beck (Sea Cut)
The weir is a redundant sewage pipe leading to an outfall beyond Scalby Nab in Jackson's Bay. This pipe replaced an earlier (Victorian?) brick built pipe. The remains of which are also still visible. A new sewage disposal system built to meet EU water purity regulations made the pictured pipe redundant
Sea Cut
An artificial canal constructed to relieve flooding in the Lower Derwent Valley. Built by the Victorians. The canal has little water in it for most of the time. It is used to take excess floodwater. In its lower course the sea cut uses the existing valley and course of Scalby Beck.
