Crummock Water, Cumberland
Crummock Water, a lake in Cumberland, in the basin of the Cocker river, 9 miles WSW of Keswick. It lies in the same vale as Buttermere Water, commences within a mile of the foot of that lake, and extends to the north-north-west. Its length is 2½ miles, its greatest breadth two-thirds of a mile, its surface elevation above sea-level 240 feet, and its greatest depth 132 feet. The Red-Pike and Mellbreak Mountains nank its west side, the "Whiteless-Pike, Ladhousc, and Grassmoor Mountains flank its east side, and other mountains with the bold promontory of Rannerdale-Knot, are in the composition of its scenery. Three islets break its surface, but add little to its beauty. The fine waterfall of Scale Force is about three-quarters of a mile from its margin. The lake is well stored with char and trout.
