River Nent


The River Nent in Cumbria is a tributary of the River South Tyne. The river is about 11½ km long and has a catchment area of 29.3 km2.[1] The river flows in a roughly north westerly direction, through the village of Nenthead and the hamlets of Nentsberry and Nenthall, before joining the South Tyne at Alston. Historically, there was extensive mining for lead and zinc along the Nent valley.
