Eden is a unique and beautiful network of rivers, becks and lakes, stretching 80 miles from Hellgill Force to the Solway. Covering an impressive 850 square miles, it is the lifeblood of the area and it is under threat. Here at Eden Rivers Trust we have a vision for Saving the Eden and we need your help. Eden is your river to explore and it is up to all of us to work together to Save the Eden. We believe people have the power to save rivers and that individual actions add up to make a big difference.
Many thanks to The River Garth Guest House for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The Guest House is situated on the banks of the River Eamont,a short walk from the historic market town of Penrith. The river is formed by the outflow from Ullswater in the Lake District , later augmented by Dacre Beck from the west and the River Lowther which carries the water from Haweswater north to the Eamont at Penrith. On 12 July 927, Eamont Bridge was the scene of a gathering of kings from throughout Britain as recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and the histories of William of Malmesbury and John of Worcester. Present were Athelstan, ConstantÃn mac Ãeda , Owain of Strathclyde, Hywel Dda, and Ealdred son of Eadulf. This is generally seen as the date of the foundation of the Kingdom of England.
