NAME OF RIVER: Eden.
WHERE IS IT?: North Cumbria. It eventually reaches the sea at Carlisle
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The river is mostly grade 2 with some rapids which reach grade 3 at high water levels.
There could obviously be trees in the river but none of the rapids are particularly dangerous at normal levels, mostly various types of gravelly constriction rapids. However, watch out for stepping stones a few kilometres after put in and also remains of a weir another 1km after this, inspect due to overhanging trees, but its portagable with care, not to be shot without a careful look. River continues with regular riffles. After the River Eamont joins on your left, watch out for fisherman river left or in the river and also there are a couple of breakwaters (walls into the river) river left. You will shortly be approaching Langwathby bridge, get river left downstream of the bridge, at low levels there is a gravel beach here. Also, there is a row of sheet piles right across the river I believe the river from left to right.
