Duddon Valley, Cumbria
Cumbria, England. The River Duddon flows through the valley before
flowing into the Irish Sea near Broughton in Furness. The valley lies
between Eskdale and Coniston and commences west of the Three Shire
Stones at the high and bleak Wrynose Pass. The valley was much loved
by poet WIlliam Wordsworth. Duddon Valley is home to a host of
wildlife including plants like the wood anemones, violets and
primroses and birds such as the buzzard and peregrine falcons. The
rare red squirrel, almost totally wiped out by the imported grey
squirrel elsewhere, has also survived in this area of England.
