NY8802 : Stonesdale Beck

taken 6 years ago, near to West Stonesdale, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Stonesdale Beck
Stonesdale Beck
After a number of ledge drops and slides in the first couple of kilometres, there is a flatter stretch on the beck, leading down to a ford, which makes a convenient take-out if you don't want to dice with the tree-infested gorge leading down to the Swale (there's a siphon and an 8m waterfall in there too, so a lot more water is needed than we had on this trip). This photo was taken eight seconds after putting back on below a bridge which has a livestock fence dangling underneath to tangle unwary boaters, so it's not all straightforward, even in the flat stretch.
