About Ennerdale Water

Ennerdale Water is the most westerly lake in the Lake District National Park with a maximum depth of only 45 metres (150 ft), and measures between 700 and 1,500 metres (1/2 mile to a mile) wide and 3.9 kilometres (2 miles) long.

The lake lies in the Ennerdale valley surrounded by fells that include some of the highest and best known peaks in Cumbria such as Great Gable (899 m), Green Gable, Brandreth, High Crag, Steeple and Pillar.

 is used by hikers, tourists and cyclists, but not as heavily as other lakes in the National Park, so is much more unspoilt.

The small village of Ennerdale Bridge lies to the west of the lake containing little more than a shop, two pubs and a few houses.

Once a year, during the last week in August, the Ennerdale Show brings local people together with agricultural displays, competitions, arts and crafts.
