Crummock Water

Crummock Water is located between Buttermere to the south and Loweswater to the north. The lake is 2.5 miles long, 0.6 miles wide and 140 feet deep. The River Cocker is considered to start at the north of the lake, before then flowing into Lorton Vale.

The hill of Mellbreak runs the full length of the lake on its western side; as Alfred Wainwright described it: "no pairing of hill and lake in Lakeland have a closer partnership than these".

  • The meaning of 'Crummock' is 'Crooked one'.

The lake is owned by the National Trust.
