Those who like to go walking
in the Lake District can enjoy seeing plenty of tarns - including one very famous one - on a guided walk in the Langdales this month.
Taking place on October 12th, the event starts in Elterwater Village at the National Trust car park at 10:30 BST, from where it climbs Lingmoor Fell and then descends via Side Pike to Blea Tarn, before descending into Little Langdale and back to the start.
Boots and walking jackets
are advisable as the guide to the event describes having the right footwear as "essential" and outdoor clothing
to be "required".
Lingmoor and Little Langdale both have tarns bearing their name, but Blea Tarn is the most famous due to being the subject of the Wordsworth poem The Excursion.
However, his description of the location as a "quote treeless nook" is out of date as there is now a copse and a number of rhododendron bushes by its shore.
