Description: 500 yd. and 10 degrees E. of S. from High Cockhow, about 1 m. S. of Ennerdale Bridge. Looking N. The junction of the 700 ft. (-) overflow channel from glacial Lake Ennerdale and one somewhat above 600 ft. The former enters the deep gorge, now occupied by Nannycatch Beck, from the NE. and the latter from the NW. The characteristic wide flat-bottomed nature of the typical 'overflow' is well shown here. The background is 'Irish Sea' Glacial gravels on Skiddaw Slate. The spur in the middle right indicates the pre-overflow surface.
