... Lowes Water is one of the out-lying lakes, and its lower end is tame accordingly: but it is only a mile long; and the peaks congregate finely about its head. The circuit of Lowes Water, (seven miles) is a charming morning's walk. There is a prosperous look about the homesteads there, and a richness about the meadows which smacks of the level country, ...

LOWES WATER
Is a narrow lake, extending more than a mile in length, and from five to ten fathoms in depth. It is tame at its head, the water being bordered with little cultivated estates, the dwelling-houses in the centre, and the green enclosures lying around; but when viewed in the contrary direction, it presents a magnificent assemblage of mountains at its outlet,
Page 92:-
where its waters flow out, passing the Hamlet into Crummock Water. The mountains that lie around are high and rocky, rising abruptly from their bases, and assuming conical forms. The declivities are covered with brushwood and scattered trees, adding greatly to the romantic and diversified scenery of the country.

Lowes Water is surrounded by noble mountains, and pours its waters into Crummock Lake.

generally exhibit the most interesting mountain scenery, in looking towards the head of the lake; this, on the contrary, is more tame towards its head, while at its foot the mountains appear of bolder forms. It is not the difference between one piece of water and another, but the endless variety of scenery with which they are associated, that gives to every lake its peculiar character. Lowes Water, viewed from the end of Melbreak, exhibits a sweet rural landscape, the cultivated slopes being ornamented with neat farm houses and trees: but, taking the view in an opposite direction, the lake makes a middle distance to a combination of mountains scarcely to be equalled.
The best approach to Lowes Water is from Lamplugh, or Pardshaw, by the farm house at Fangs; below which, on descending the hill, we first come in sight of the lake. On the left, beyond Low Fell, we have the lofty precipitous front of Grasmoor, succeeded by Witeless Pike, Robinson, and Rannerdale Knot, beyond Crummock Lake. On the right lie Burnbank, and Carling Knot; in front Melbreak rises in an aspiring cone, flanked by High Stile and Red Pike on one hand, and the peaked perpendicular front of Honister Crag on the other: between the last and Rannerdale Knot, is just seen a part of the mountain called Hay Stacks, near Stonethwaite in Borrowdale. At a gate opening to the Common, the top of the Pillar may be seen to the right of Red Pike.

LOWES-WATER.
... the lake spreads out before you, a mile in length, and of an equal breadth of about a quarter of a mile. The extremities are rivals in beauty of hanging woods, little groves, and waving inclosures, with farms seated in the sweetest points of view. The south end is overlooked by lofty Mellbreak, ... The eastern shore is open, and indented with small bays; but the opposite side is more pleasing. Carling knot presents a broad pyramidal front, of swift ascent, covered with soft vegetation, and spotted with many aged solitary thorns. On each side the outlines wave upwards in the finest manner, terminating in a cone of grey rocks, patched with verdure.
This lake, in opposition to all the others, has its course from north to south, and under Mellbreak falls into Cromack-water. It is of no great depth, and without char; but it abounds with pike and perch, and has some trout.

Account of Ennerdale, late 18th century
Page 295:-
Within these few years, several visitors of the lakes extend their tour, by taking in Whitehaven, and proceeding from thence, ... to Ennerdale Broad-water; and, if they choose, from thence to Lowes-water, Buttermere, &c.- This part of the journey (without which the tour is incomplete) cannot, however, be performed in a carriage; but a ride on horseback will amply recompence the trouble, for the scenery is delightful, ...
Certain it is, the approach to the lake of Ennerdale, to Lowes-water, and to Buttermere, is from no other quarter so magnificent and captivating. ...
