Borrow Beck is a stream in Cumbria, England on the eastern edge of the English Lake District.[1][2]

Rising at Borrowdale Moss near Lord's Seat, the beck runs a southeasterly course, being joined by Crookdale Beck before running through Borrowdale (sometimes known as "Westmorland Borrowdale", to distinguish it from the better known Borrowdale in the central Lake District).

Borrow Beck drains into the River Lune at Low Borrowbridge south of Tebay, a confluence overlooked by a small Roman fort.
