Random queries no. 60

One of a series of genuine search engine enquiries which successfully brought visitors to the Ministry.  Can I help?

how deep is River Lune

Where on the Lune? I'm afraid that's a fairly meaningless question unless a location is specified.

At it's source above Tebay, it's a few centimetres deep, and I've waded across at Arkholme, yet it's 6 m deep at Kirkby Lonsdale (considerably upstream of Arkholme) – enough for scuba diving – and the mouth of the estuary has a tidal range of up to 10 m. Until the late 18th Century, the river was navigable by large ships as far as Lancaster, but no longer.
