Caption: Raithwaite Viaduct, Sandsend. Looking SW.
Description: Raithwaite Viaduct, Sandsend. Looking SW. Parallel streams at margins of drift-filled valley, near Raithwaite Viaduct, Sandsend. A pre-glacial valley here reaches the shore. It was filled with boulder clay to the height of the highest ground. The present drainage has cut two gorges along the junctions of the boulder clay plug (seen in centre) with the solid rock on either side. The two streams unite in foreground, 200 yards from the shore, after following these roughly parallel courses for over a mile (see also A5523).
