Even on a very wet day in January the views across the tarn at this very popular spot in the Lake District were stunning. Looking towards the outfall end of the tarn and the car park.
Tarn Hows
Tarn Hows is man-made: in Victorian times a beck was dammed enlarging 3 existing tarns into one as it is seen today. The Hows are the surrounding small, wooded hills. There is an interesting link to Beatrix Potter. For a potted history of the area see LinkExternal link

Tarn Hows is also one of the Lake District National Park's "Miles without Styles" 42 walking routes. "Miles without Styles" is a national scheme giving access to people with limited mobility, wheelchair users, families with pushchairs, dog walkers with less active dogs and the visually impaired.
