Cogra Moss is a shallow reservoir to the east of the village of Lamplugh in Cumberland, on the western edge of the Lake District. It was created by the damming of Rakegill Beck in about 1880, though its function as a water supply ceased in 1975.
The water is surrounded by forestry plantations on three sides, which climb up the flanking hills; Lamplugh Fell to the north and east and Knock Murton to the south. Thi is indeed the edge of the fells, for beyond these friendly hills the wild fells begin in earnest; Lamplugh is but the lower slope of Loweswater Fell.
The lake shore is popular with walkers and anglers.
