The River Leven, shown on the left, flows from Windermere to Greenod on the coast and provided the motive power for the industrialisation of the valley. Originally a cornmill, then a papermill, the complex was turned into a cotton mill at the end of the eighteenth century. The riverside buildings now comprise the Whitewater Hotel.
