    Details

    The stream which flows over Aira Forcel is Aira Beck, which rises on the upper slopes of Stybarrow Dodd at a height of 720 metres and flows north-easterly before turning south, blocked by the high heather-covered slopes of Gowbarrow Fell. It turns south on its eight-kilometre journey to join Ullswater, at a height of 150 metres. One kilometre before entering the lake, the beck makes the 20-metre leap down a rocky ravine at the falls known as Aira Force.
