and the bigger tarn further along the road.
Notice the boat with the two workmen. The National Trust are currently working to tidy the tarn and create areas of clear water by removing the weed and trees that normally reduce the tarn to not much more than an overgrown, unsightly puddle. It may look a mess right now, but I can't wait to come back here in summer when the work is finished.
As the saying goes; you learn something new every day - I've always known this as Whitemoss Tarn, but the information notice explaining what was going on, referred to it a Skater's Tarn. Apparently this is somewhere that William Wordsworth used to enjoy ice skating.
