about Whitewater Hotel

The History of the Whitewater, by local historian Ronald Mein

The Leven Valley in which the hotel is situated takes its name from the river flowing from the southern tip of Lake Windermere in the English Lake District. The river is now no more than a shadow of its former self since a weir was constructed upstream from the hotel; prior to this the river could produce 200 brake horse power of energy at the hotel bridge. Over the centuries many industries have existed on the site of the luxurious hotel, the earliest recorded is a corn mill that existed in Tudor times during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the first.
