Thought to be the most dangerous stretch of water in the world. The Bolton Strid is a force NOT to be reckoned with.  This innocuous looking stretch of water resembling a creek sports a 100% mortality rate (that is unverifiable) for anyone unfortunate enough to get caught in its deadly grasp.  The Bolton Strid is part of the River Wharfe, the separating line between West and North Yorkshire counties.
