River Dunsop near Dunsop Bridge

The River Dunsop is a river in the Forest of Bowland in Northern England. It flows into the River Hodder at Dunsop Bridge.[1]

It begins at the confluence of the Brennand River and Whitendale River, both of which rise high up in the surrounding moorland. It then flows through the steep-sided Dunsop Valley before meeting the Hodder.[1] The Thirlmere Aqueduct, which carries water from the Lake District to Manchester, runs alongside.

On 8 August 1967 Dunsop Valley entered the UK Weather Records with the Highest 90-min total rainfall at 117 mm. As of July 2006 this record remains.
