Fears and Phobias: Part III

Aquaphobia – The Fear of Water

The Strid at Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire, England

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.

This video perfectly sums up the stunning facts about The Strid.

After learning about the Bolton Strid, most people will think twice before setting foot in any fast-flowing body of water.

      1. OK, I see your other post now about various places of phobias. I lived in England for about three years when I was in the military, so it brought back some memories for me.


      2. That had to have been a very interesting 3 years. I am fascinated by so many places throughout the world. Since my ancestry is entirely Western European, I am especially interested in the history of this area.
