Cockerhoop Fell Run for Flood Defences

The residents of Cockermouth need to raise money to build flood defences to protect our beautiful town.  The Cockermouth Flood Action Group is working with the Environment Agency and others to design and build improved defences to protect homes and businesses from flooding.

The Cockerhoop fell run aims to help raise money by taking on the imposing watershed of the River Cocker on the 19th November 2011, the second anniversary of the floods.

This challenging 35 mile route begins and ends on the River Cocker foot bridge next to the Jennings brewery in the heart of Cockermouth, and follows the skyline above Crummock Water and Buttermere, taking in the main mountain summits of the watershed, including Melbreak, Red Pike, High Crag, Haystacks, Brandreth, Dale Head, Robinson, Grassmoor and Hope Gill Head.
