Tarn Hows, English Lake District, 28th October 2015

It was raining as ever, albeit warm rain, a blessing in Cumbria. The circular walk is only two miles or so and our grandchildren moaned not one moan, so glorious was the view of Tran Hows in the mist and drizzle. Originally formed from three smaller tarns, the tarn we see today was created in the late 19th century and is certainly one of the most visited sites in the Lakes. It is all the more wonderful with the addition a short time ago of a toilet block. Hurrah.

 We met a young shepherd on our journey, an intrepid traveller.

And a young maiden, shielding herself from the elements.
