Arkle Beck is the stream running through the valley of Arkengarthdale in the Yorkshire Dales, England. It is a tributary of the River Swale,[1] which it joins just past Reeth at Grinton Bridge.[2] The beck itself has several tributaries which include:

  • Great Punchard Gill
  • William's Gill
  • Annaside Beck
  • Roe Beck

In 1986, a section of the meadow alongside Arkle Beck at Whaw was designated as a site of special scientific interest (SSSI).[3]
