Low and High Dam (tarns)

 

Map

 

High and Low Dam tarn (s) are to be found only a short walk through the woods above Finsthwaite. A circuit of these two tarns makes for a very enjoyable couple of hours walking.
Water from the tarn used to provide the power for the nearby Stott Park Bobbin Mill.
