English Lakeland


11. Aira Force

Aira Force. - The gorge down which dashes this Force is the most beautiful spot in Gowbarrow Park, and the fall itself, a single leap of about sixt3' feet, is a very fine sight.

The park and the fell above it were the first areas in Lakeland to be acquired by the National Trust, who will hold them for all time for the unrestrained and free use of the public.

Stybarrow Crag, Ullswater, overlooks the upper waters of the lake and is reached by a short woodland walk from Glenridding. It is probably responsible for a greater consumption of photographic film than any other single spot.
