Bowscale Tarn


Bowscale Tarn is situated on the eastern of Bowscale Fell, and located just over a mile east of the small settlement of Bowscale in Cumbria. It is a corrie tarn - a lake in circular bowl eroded by a glacier. The tarn is about 17 metres deep and William Wordsworth wrote that it was the home of two immortal fish![1] Alfred Wainwright noted that Bowscale Tarn was a popular tourist attraction in Victorian times, with visitors brought by pony (the pony track from Bowscale still exists today as a bridleway).[2]
