Tarns

I love tarns.  And I can pinpoint the exact time when I realised it – the afternoon of 26 June 2006.  This page is dedicated to my favourite mountain feature.  Any posts I make about tarns can be indexed from here.  And I am also tracking my progress against  John and Ann Nuttall’s list from their two volumes of books on the Lakeland tarns.

The Joy of Tarns

Lakeland Tarns Progress

I have pulled together a list from John and Ann’s books, and am tracking my completion of them.  I’m using the list to help me plan walks, but I’m only really looking at the tarns that actually exist and aren’t on private land.  Here is the list of Lake District tarns that I’ve visited, in order.
