The course of Goathland Beck, where it issues from its native valley to join the waters of the Esk near Growmond Bridge, is hemmed in by perpendicular rocks or steep acclivities; and the only means of entrance into this part of Goathland, before the formation of the railway, was by means of a dangerous and uncertain ford across this channelled stream.
