Cogra Moss

Current information regarding storm damage:

There are significant amounts of windblown trees across the top contour road, through a crop of lodgepole pine which runs adjacent to the forest road in Cogra Moss, making it impassible either by vehicle or on foot. 

Unfortunately the clearance requires mechanised harvesting machinery to make it safe, and this will be picked up in our planned harvesting programme.

Access via the farmland to the water and lower levels of the forest are unaffected.

Please adhere to all information, warning and prohibition signage, and report any further problems to us.

Cogra Moss is situated on the north-western edge of the Lake District National Park around 2km east of the village of Lamplugh. The forest covers an area of 264ha of which approximately 100 ha is open fell and heath land above the tree line.
