The River Dunsop is a river in the Forest of Bowland in Northern England. It flows into the River Hodder at Dunsop Bridge.

It begins at the confluence of the Brennand River and Whitendale River, both of which rise high up in the surrounding moorland. It then flows through the steep-sided Dunsop Valley before meeting the Hodder. The Thirlmere Aqueduct, which carries water from the Lake District to Manchester, runs alongside.

On 8 August 1967 Dunsop Valley entered the UK Weather Records with the Highest 90-min total rainfall at 117 mm. As of July 2006 this record remains.
