Natural rivers for life

Find out what makes the Eden special

Eden is a unique and beautiful network of rivers, becks and lakes, stretching 80 miles from Hellgill Force to the Solway Firth. Covering an impressive 850 square miles, it is the lifeblood of the area and it is under threat.

Here at Eden Rivers Trust our vision is for a healthy Eden for all and we need your help. Eden is your river to explore and enjoy, we believe that working together we can make a big difference to the health of our rivers making the Eden a better place for people and wildlife.
