Scalby Beck from The Cleveland Way
Due to the formation of an artificial flood relief channel from the River Derwent, the beck is now much wider. The diversion occurs about 10 km upstream of West Ayton into a new channel called the Sea Cut along a previously dry sided valley and into the existing Scalby Beck. The Sea Cut was built in 1804. In 1799 there was severe flooding in the vales of Derwent and Hertford and local landowners looked for a solution to the problem. Mr William Chapman, Engineer, recommended the digging of a canal to link the Derwent at Mowthorpe, to Scalby Beck, which flowed into the sea at Scalby Mills.
