Devoke Water


It lies on Birker Fell, 0.75 miles to the west of the road between Ulpha and Eskdale, at an altitude of 770 feet. It has a depth of 46 feet at its deepest point.

It can be reached via a bridle track. There is a two storey stone boathouse-cum-refuge and a ruined stable. Devoke Water has an outlet in the north west, via Black Beck, which, after a short distance, plunges over rocks down a 26 feet  cascade, towards the River Esk.



The fishing rights to Devoke Water are owned by Millom Anglers and it is stocked with brown trout. It also holds perch.
