River Derwent (Cumberland)

This river rises near Scafell Pike, flows through the Lake District to Keswick and eventually in to the Irish sea near Workington. Floods caused much desolation in 2009.

River Eden

The River rises in the extreme east of Westmorland and, after taking water from many tributaries, flows through the county and through Cumberland to reach the Solway Firth near the Solway Firth.

River Lune

This river is formed at Wath in Westmorland by the joining of two becks. It then flows through the Lune Valley and Kirkby Lonsdale to the sea near Lancaster.

River Mersey and tributaries

Starts in Stockport at the confluence of the Goyt and the Etherow. Then flows along the border of Cheshire and Lancashire to reach the sea between Liverpool and Birkenhead. Part of the Manchester Ship Canal is used.

River Ribble

This river rises near Ribblehead in Yorkshire and then flows through the Ribble Valley and Preston in Lancashire to enter the sea near that point.

River Wyre

This river rises in the Trough of Bowland, flowing through Lancashire to the sea at Fleetwood.
