Great Walks: Wordsworth’s River Duddon
In this DVD Ericc Robson travels with Nell, his border collie, the length of one of Lakeland’s most beautiful but least explored rivers from source to sea.
The Duddon was William Wordsworth’s favourite river in the Lake District. He wrote that you “could catch glimpses of Heaven in its clear waters”. It rises in bleak terrain high on the Wrynose Pass and for a while hugs the Roman road that connected Ambleside with the port of Ravenglass.
It’s a river of contrasts and excitements passing through the beautiful Lake District countryside, plunging into the Wallowbarrow Gorge, bubbling through Seathwaite and Ulpha, powering one of the great furnaces of Lakeland s industrial revolution and then broadening to welcome the Irish Sea.
