The reference for this was gathered on my last trip up to the Lake District. Being a somewhat strange winter/spring regarding the weather, heavy snow in spring just added to that. The river is the River Derwent (there's three in the UK with the same name but located in different areas) and had less water in that I'd hoped - I was standing on one of the beds of pebbles that move about with each bout of heavy rain.
