Aira Force Again

Aira Force Again is a new poem by Grace Gant, inspired by a return visit that saw the falls in a different mood than the one that inspired Aira Force.


Glaisdale is one of a series of side-valleys that run into Esk Dale, and falls into two distinct areas. Most of the dale is a typical Moors valley, flat bottomed and steep sided, but close to the Esk the valley closes up, with Glaisdale Beck running through a narrow wooded valley.

Genus Sterna - typical white terns

The genus Sterna now contains a group of medium sized white terns that live in coastal waters.
