River Derwent (Yorkshire) :: Shared Description
The Derwent rises on Fylingdale Moors (North Yorkshire Moors National Park) and flows 72 miles, mainly south to its junction with the River Ouse at Barmby Barrage. En route it passes through a number of glacial overflow channels, namely The Forge Valley ( Link
) and Kirkham Abbey Gorge. It originally would have had its mouth near Scarborough but this was blocked by glacial debris. The river is prone to flooding, to relieve this pressure the Victorians constructed the Sea Cut Link
