SE9889 : The Sea Cut west of Scarborough

taken 12 years ago, near to Everley, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

The Sea Cut west of Scarborough
The Sea Cut west of Scarborough
A man made canal type watercourse built by Sir George Caley in the 1800s to relieve flooding from the River Derwent into the Vale of Pickering. In periods of heavy rain water is taken from the Derwent and shipped 4 miles via the Sea Cut into the North Sea at Scalby Ness. This saves it travelling 150 miles and eventually reaching the Humber Estuary and the North Sea there. A clever flood relief scheme of the Victorian period.
