River Clyde: course correction?
A "hole" in the bank where the river has changed course. The current is flowing into the bank and is eroding a bank.NS7653 : River Clyde On the opposite side, silt is being deposited. This could lead to a new meander being formed. Over time the river would have wandered all over its flood plain.
