OVERLOOKING CRUMMOCK WATER FROM THE EAST WITH GRASSMOOR ON THE FARTHER SIDE

OVERLOOKING CRUMMOCK WATER FROM THE EAST WITH GRASSMOOR ON THE FARTHER SIDE

The Cumberland river the Cocker, which flows into the Irish Sea at Cockermouth, runs out of Crummock Water at the north end. This lake also receives a stream from Buttermere, and another from the little lake of Loweswater. Across Crummock Water are the impressive heights of the Grassmoor Fells, Grassmoor itself rising to an altitude of 2,791 feet. The other hills about the lake are not among the highest in the district, only one or two, and these on the west side exceed 2,000 feet, but the scenery is particularly beautiful and should not be missed There is also the advantage that the villages of Loweswater and Buttermere are conveniently situated, the one at the north end of the lake and the other at the south.
