River Duddon, Cumbria | Lancashire

River Duddon
The River Duddon is a 15 mile long river located in Cumbria, England.
The river marks the boundary between Lancashire and the historic
county of Cumberland. The river is narrow and joins the Irish Sea at
Duddon Sands. As well as being populated by sea trout and wild
brownies, the River Duddon is a large salmon fishery. During 1818 and
1819 the river inspired William Wordsworth to write several sonnets
about it entitled, ‘The River Duddon, a Series of Sonnets’ which was
published in 1820 in Miscellaneous Poems, Vol III.
