The Strid is a very narrow channel in the rock formations of Wharfedale through which passes the River Wharfe. Situated in extensive woodland on land which forms the Bolton Abbey Estate. A pleasant woodland walk from the Cavendish Pavilion car park.
The water is very deep and extremely fast flowing. For visitors to The Strid DO NOT under any circumstances try to jump this river. Many people have lost their lives trying.
Location: Bolton Abbey Woods, Wharfedale
