The Eden rises in Black Fell Moss Mallerstang on the high ground between High Seat, Yorkshire Dales & Hugh Seat. Here it forms the boundary between the counties of Cumbria & North Yorkshire. 2 other great rivers arise in the same peat bogs here within a kilometre of each other the River Swale & River Ure. It starts life as Red Gill Beck then becomes Hell Gill Beck before turning north & joining with Ais Gill Beck to become the River Eden. Hell Gill Force just before it meets Ais Gill Beck, is the highest waterfall along its journey to the sea. The steep sided dale of Mallerstang later opens out to become the Vale of Eden. The river flows through Kirkby Stephen & Appleby in Westmorland & receives the water of many becks flowing off the Pennines to the east & longer rivers from the Lakes off to the west including the River Lyvennet, River Leith & River Eamont, which arrives via Ullswater & Penrith. Continuing north it passes close to the ancient stone circle known as Long Meg & Her Daughters & through the sparsely populated beef & dairy farming regions of the vale of Cumbria on the Solway Plain. After flowing through Wetheral it merges with the River Irthing from the east followed by the River Petteril & River Caldew from the south as it winds through Carlisle. Its junction with the River Caldew in north Carlisle marks the point where Hadrians Wall crosses the Eden, only 5 miles before both reach their end at the tidal flats. It enters the Solway Firth near the mouth of the River Esk after a total distance of 90 miles 145km. Carp, Pike, Roach, Bream, Tench, Rudd, Barbell, Chub & Silver Fish.
