River Skell :: Shared Description

The River Skell is a tributary of the River Ure in North Yorkshire. It isa about 12 miles long.
The source of the river lies in boggy ground on moorland 2 miles north of Pateley Bridge. For its first 2 miles the river is known as Skell Beck. Descending from the moor the river enters a narrow wooded valley known as Skell Gill. The river valley gradually broadens, but remains well wooded, passing the villages of Skelding and Grantley and the 17th century Grantley Hall.
The river then enters Studley Royal Park and flows past Fountains Hall and the ruins of Fountains Abbey. Below the abbey the river was dammed in the 18th century to form an ornamental lake and water garden. Below the park the river enters the city of Ripon, and on the outskirts of the city receives its largest tributary, the River Laver. The Skell enters the River Ure 0.5 miles east of the centre of Ripon.
