River Brathay

The Brathay is a river in Cumbria. Its name comes from Old Norse and means “broad river”. It rises at a point 1289 feet above sea level near the Three Shire Stone at the highest point of Wrynose Pass and it flows in a generally easterly direction until it drains into the northern end of Windermere, near Ambleside. The river forms part of the boundary between the historic counties of Lancashire and Westmorland LinkExternal link .
