The Wenning passing The Punch Bowl in Low Bentham

The River Wenning is a tributary of the River Lune, flowing through mostly the West Riding of Yorkshire but in its lower reaches in Lancashire.

The Wenning is formed from the confluence of Clapham Beck, which rises above Clapham, and Austwick Beck, which rises in Crummackdale above Austwick. It then flows westwards through High Bentham, Low Bentham and into Lancashire to Wennington.

The river joins the River Lune about a mile east of Hornby.

This river's valley, together with Airedale and Wharfedale, make up the Yorkshire district of Craven.
