The Bolton Strid: The Most Dangerous River Section In The World?

The Bolton Strid is a narrow section of the River Wharfe in Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire, England. It is a picturesque stretch that appears modest and calm. This section of the river is so narrow that visitors can jump from one bank to the other. However, beneath the calm waters lie death traps that have claimed lives or left horrible memories to those that were lucky enough to survive. The Bolton Strid is narrow, not because the water flows off course but because the river changes orientation.
