Birk Beck at Greenholme

Birk Beck is a minor river in Westmorland, in the south of the county, and which becomes a tributary of the River Lune.

Rising on the fells near Shap, Birk Beck runs south-by-south east, picking up Wasdale Beck (which has run east draining Yarlside and Gargill) and Bretherdale Beck (flowing east from Demmings Moss and Bretherdale Bank) before descending into Lonsdale and discharging its waters into the River Lune near the head of the Lune Gorge, by Castle Howe close to Old Tebay.
