River Wampool, Cumbria

River Wampool
The River Wampool rises at Chalkfoot near East Curthwaite and flows
through Cumbria, in the north western region of England. A number of
rivers and streams feed the Wampool as it journeys to the sea. The
Wampool issues into the Irish Sea at Solway Firth via Morecambe Bay. At
West Curthwaite the river is joined by Gill Beck and at Micklethwaite
it is joined by Whinnow Beck. Later the River Wampool is joined by
Bampton Beck, and extends out to Morecambe Bay, at Anthorn. The
Wampool floodplain has been identified by the Cumbria Wetlands Project
as an area that would benefit from help to restore the original wet
grassland habitat.
