Eden is a unique and beautiful network of rivers, becks and lakes, stretching 80 miles from Hellgill Force to the Solway. Covering an impressive 850 square miles, it is the lifeblood of the area and it is under threat. Here at Eden Rivers Trust we have a vision for Saving the Eden and we need your help. Eden is your river to explore and it is up to all of us to work together to Save the Eden. We believe people have the power to save rivers and that individual actions add up to make a big difference.
The source of the Petteril is near Penruddock and Motherby, from where the young river runs southeast through Greystoke, Blencow and Newton Reigny, before passing under the M6 motorway, after which the river turns north, and the motorway roughly follows the course of the river towards Carlisle. Having reached Carlisle, the Petteril runs a course through the south east of Carlisle, dividing the suburbs of Harraby, Upperby and Botcherby before joining the River Eden on its journey to the Solway Firth.
