Title: The Swale, Ure and Ouse catchment (river factfiles)
Author: Environment Agency North East Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet aims to analyse different environmental issues of the Swale, Ure and Ouse catchment, located in the North East Region. The River Swale begins as a small series of becks on the Northern Pennines within the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. It flows eastwards along Swaledale and passes through Richmond and Catterick before turning south eastwards to join the Ure at Boroughbridge. The River Ure also rises on the Pennines just south of the Swale and becomes known as the River Ouse at the point where Ouse Gill Beck runs in.
