The river Esk starts its journey to the sea from high in the fells at Esk Hause, passing through Great Moss at the base of Scafell Pike then tumbling down through a narrow gorge and a series of waterfalls. The stream swelled by many becks becomes a river and encounters its first road at the foot of Hardknott Pass England's steepest road. From here the river takes on a more gentle character with small rapids as it passes through some of the most beautiful oak woodland in Cumbria. The Esk is responsible for carving this remarkable landscape which is both picturesque and dramatic with majestic high peaks, stunning waterfalls and rolling green hills.
