The Strid is a natural wonder, where the river suddenly narrows forcing the water through at great pressure. It was formed by the wearing away of softer rock by the circular motion of small stones in hollows. The Strid is positioned in the heart of Strid Wood - depending on how far you wish to walk the Strid can be accessed from all three Bolton Abbey car parks.
Please note the Strid is very dangerous and lives have been lost. Take note of the signs in this area and stay well back from the edge.
