Aira Force

Aira Force lies close to the Western shore of Ullswater and is one of the most accessible of all Lakeland's waterfalls.

This footage was taken by Martin Rushton of the Bridge House Hotel, Grasmere. There had been plenty of rain during the days before the footage was taken and the spectacular falls were certainly well worth the visit.

One of the best things about the Lake District is that elements of it retain their attraction in what for many other tourist destinations would be bad weather. Here in the lakes we have many spectacular waterfalls that really come to life after a deluge. Were we to have blue sky and sunshine all the time the region would lose a lot of it's unique character. There really is no joy in seeing a waterfall running at a mere trickle.
