Cogra Moss

Cogra Moss is a hidden gem in West Cumbria. Cogra Moss is a shallow reservoir to the east of the village of Lamplugh on the western edge of the English Lake District.

It was created by the damming of Rakegill Beck in about 1880, though its function as a water supply ceased in 1975. The reservoir, which is surrounded by forestry plantations on three sides, is popular with walkers and anglers.

A number of unsurfaced paths provide you with great access around the reservoir in a loop.

For the more adventurous, the walk up onto the top of Blake Fell is harder but provides fantastic views of the northern lake district fells, Scotland, the Solway Coast and Isle of Man.
