River Eden
Safety notes for members and visitors

Invasive Species/Biosecurity

The Eden Rivers Trust


There are 20 maps in total in a set. Each of the 20 maps have been numbered and each stretch of water named, making reference for future changes simpler to explain in writing. To help determine your precise location when on the river, all the PAA signs will be numbered. This numbering system is reflected on the maps by identifying each particular sign by its number, in a circle.

The circled numbers prefixed by a "P" e.g. P1, identify parking spots. The directions set out at the bottom of each map are accurate to the nearest 0.05 mile. Please note that when compiling these directions, the car mileometer was reset to zero at the beginning of each stage. For increased accuracy therefore, it is suggested that you adopt the same format.

As you will notice, most of the directions begin at Kemplay Roundabout. This is the first roundabout on the A66 when travelling east from Junction 40 of the M6.

If you do not want to start at Kemplay Roundabout the following link may be helpful, you can get access to Ordnance survey maps and get a bird's eye view of the area Where's the path ?

The maps are available for members and visitors to print copies and they should fit a single A4 sheet, before printing it may be worth clicking File at the top of the page, then click Page set up and change from Portrait to Landscape as all maps except 2 and 16 are in this format, alternatively you can change in print properties before printing or check by doing a print preview.

Please note: The fishing on maps 2,3,5,14,15 and 16 is restricted to members and their guests only, day and weekly permits are not valid on these stretches.
