Lake near the Summit of Carn Marth
Lake near the Summit of Carn Marth
This lake is formed in an old granite quarry. In 1986 there were plans to reopen quarrying on Carn Marth which would have effectively destroyed the heathland vegetation and the amenity value of this hill. Local people formed the Carn Marth Trust which raised funds and grants to purchase land on Carn Marth to stop this happening. The Trust takes responsibility for maintaining the amenity value and biodiversity on the hill.
