The river rises at Grisedale in south eastern Cumbria, where a group of smaller streams draining Grisedale Pike converge as Grisedale Beck. The young Clough River then goes through a short valley Grisedale, The Dale That Died & over a waterfall before being named Clough at Clough Farm, Garsdale Head where it enters Garsdale a valley formed by the river between East Baugh Fell to the north & Rise Hill south. The Clough is mainly shallow & rocky with occasional pools large enough for swimming, though the water is always cold. The A684 Northallerton to Kendal road follows the river for 7 miles with frequent bridges in the upper part of the dale. At Longstone Fell the main former turnpike road rises to a well known view point looking over the Howgill Fells & the river descends to Danny Bridge, the site of a 17 century mill on the old road before merging with the River Rawthey at Dowbiggin Foot near Sedbergh & joining the River Lune at Middleton Bridge. The Sedgwick Trail named after the well known geologist Adam Sedgwick 1785 to 1873 runs along the Clough from Danny Bridge & highlights rock features along the Dent Fault. The ancient county through which the Clough River runs is the West Riding of Yorkshire & it is still part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park though its entire length is now within the South Lakeland district of Cumbria DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM www.carpinfo.co.uk
