Guided walk set for Tarn Hows
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to don their walking boots and enjoy a short autumn trek may wish to take part in an event being organised by Lake District National Park Authority rangers on October 24th.

Starting in the Monk Coniston National Trust car park at 10:30 BST, the walk lasts five hours and walking boots are described as essential.

A packed lunch should also be brought and with the trek taking place deep into autumn, a fleece may be a very useful garment for the colder weather.

The 5.9-mile route uses a revived Victorian path from Coniston to Yewdale and visits Tarn Hows along the way.

Ordnance Survey maps users may note the tarn there is called The Tarns, with the plural providing an historical clue about its origin.

In the 19th century there were three smaller tarns on the site, but the damming of a stream brought these together in a single, enlarged sheet of water.
