Devoke Water

Devoke Water is a small lake in the mid-west region of the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. It is the largest tarn in the Lake District.

It lies on Birker Fell, 1 km to the west of the road between Ulpha and Eskdale, at an altitude of 770 feet (223 m). It has a depth of 46 feet.

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 northwest, via Black Beck, which, after a short distance, plunges over rocks down a 26ft cascade, towards the River Esk.
