River Wenning passing The Punch Bowl in Low Bentham

The Wenning is formed from the confluence of Clapham Beck, which rises above Clapham, and Austwick Beck, which rises in Crummackdale above Austwick. It then flows westwards through High Bentham, Low Bentham and Wennington.

It joins the River Lune approx. 1 mile (1.5 km) west of Hornby.

This river's valley, together with Airedale, Wharfedale and upper Ribblesdale make up the district of Craven.
