Geocache Description:

Short steepish walk

The main force falls 70 feet from below a stone footbridge. Aira Force provides a glimpse of a landscaped Victorian park with dramatic waterfalls, arboretum and rocks scenery. In the 1780's the Howard family of Greystoke Castle had an old hunting lodge or Pele tower close to the Ullswater shore renovated into what is now Lyulph's Tower, set among its own sporting estate. They landscaped the area around the force, and used it as a pleasure garden, planting over half a million native and ornamental trees, and established a network of tracks, footpaths and bridges. In 1846 the Howards created an arboretum below Aira Force, planting over 200 specimen conifers (firs, pines, spruces and cedars) from all over the world, including a Sitka Spruce 118 feet high. After a walk along this part of Ullswater, Wordsworth wrote the famous 'Daffodils'.Cache contains: Tattoo, reflectors, joke, clowns, animal marker, mood head, tape, tweety pen, mini torch and green neon eraser.
