Wet Sleddale and Swindale
SWINDALE 07A - Stepping stones over Swindale Beck
Stepping stones over Swindale Beck in Swindale near Shap, Cumbria.
Natural England, the RSPB, the Environment Agency and United Utilities have recently been working together to put the bends back into Swindale Beck that runs through the valley. This should prevent flooding and help the wildlife. The beck had been straightened in the 1800s to provide more land for grazing and hay making.
