 The Geomorphology of the River Aire Valley
It joins the River Ouse some 16 Km downstream at Airmyn (472300,426200), giving it a point to point distance of about 91 km flowing in a general direction of 115°.
Especially remarkable is the fact that the river, in it's initial development might be assumed to emanate from Malham Tarn, but because of the subterranean path it takes after this lake, it's nascence is not so straight forward.
The upper reaches are, like the river's neighbours to the north and south, in a deep trough like valley, (Airedale), where the erosional aspects of glaciation are most obvious.

The Aire and Calder navigation Company had been in dispute with Knottingley for several years, due to the use of water by the mill which led to low water levels in the navigation.

Discovered from the air in 1991 and surveyed over the winter of 1991/2, this fort is situated on the south bank of the River Aire, a tributary of the Humber, about 8 miles east of the fort at Castleford and about the same distance north-east of the fort at Burghwallis.
There are no known roads in the immediate area, which has led archaeologists and historians to speculate that the fort was intended to control river traffic and was itself supplied along the Aire.
In plan the fort has a classic rectangular, "playing card" shape outlined by a defensive system comprising a rampart and double ditch, and is seemingly aligned to the north-east across the River Aire.
