Gallery - Eden Valley, Penrith and Appleby

Lying between the Lake District and the Pennines, this peaceful and unspoilt area has a turbulent history as witnessed by the fine castles at Appleby, Pendragon, Brough, Brougham and Penrith. The River Eden runs for 75 miles from its source in Mallerstang to the Solway Firth, flowing through Kirkby Stephen, Appleby, Lazonby, Kirkoswald, Armathwaite and Wetheral. Cross Fell, the highest point of the Pennines, towers over the wide valley, sheltering small fellside villages such as Dufton, Knock and Melmerby.
