River Leven

Being fed by the largest lake in the area (Windermere), the Leven often stays up longer than other rivers, so is a good fallback when levels are dropping. Conversely, it takes a while to get going after rain. Most notable for it's drops and weirs, with rapids in between to keep you interested, the hardest drop (apart from a weir which is almost a compulsory portage) is Backbarrow Bridge Falls.
