This was the first commissioned report by the society. “The object of Col Imrie is to describe the appearances which he discovered in ascending along the bed of the river and this he seems to have done with great minuteness The most remarkable circumstances brought to view in the cleft through which the Esk flows are the gradual elevation of the sandstone from the horizontal to the vertical position and the manner in which the strata are intersected by whinstone.” [Griffiths]
