The meander in the River Skirfare; the process was certainly ongoing as there a continuous rattle of stones into the river on the outside of the bend. The bluff was about 2 metres high, but as seen directly above, not all of the bend is attacked in times of lower flow. The slip-off slope was , as can be seen, stony and the load of larger material appears impressive.

Looking down on Arncliffe from Brootes Lane, on the road over to Malham. The meanders here are on a still relatively steep section of  Cowside Beck, and the debris on the narrow flood plain is distinctly stony.
