It was flowing quite quickly and providing perfect water for a kayak.
At this point, it is near the end of its course, soon joining the River Rothay at Ambleside before feeding the northern end of Lake Windermere.
Interesting to note that this river once formed the boundary between Lancashire and Westmoreland. I hadn't realised that when county boundaries were adjusted in 1974 and Westmoreland and Cumberland merged to become Cumbria, a great chunk of Lancashire was also sacrificed to the new county. The whole of the Barrow in Furness Peninsula was once part of Lancashire, stretching up to include most of Windermere and encompassing Coniston Old Man. Nowadays Lancashire stops at the top side of Morecambe Bay, near Arnside, some 25 miles south of the Brathay.
