Title: The Aire catchment (river factfiles)
Author: Environment Agency North East Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet aims to analyse different environmental issues of the River Aire catchment. The River Aire rises high in the Pennine Hills near Malham in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It flows in a south east direction through limestone moorland areas passing Keighley, Bingley, Bradford and Leeds. At Castleford the river turns eastward to Goole where it meets the River Ouse. From Keighley to Goole the river flows through heavily populated and industrialised areas. For the last 26 kilometres upstream of Goole the river is tidal.
