Walk set for unfamiliar part of lakes
Bookmark and Share
Walking boots have been described as essential items for a walk being staged by the Lake District National Park Authority that involves visits to two of its lesser-known tarns.

Potter Tarn and Gurnal Dubs are featured in the event on August 23rd, which starts at a cafe in the village of Staveley.

The walk begins at 10:30 BST and lasts for five hours, covering 6.3 miles of terrain in an area of the Lake District that may be off the beaten track for many.

Bringing a packed lunch is also recommended so those taking part may wish to get some backpacking food first.

The fells around Kentmere, Staveley and Longsleddale in the south-east of the national park have a number of tarns, of which some - like the two featured in the walk - are artificial.

Another man-made tarn nearby is Ghyll Pool, with a conspicuous dam, while natural tarns in the vicinity include Low Taggleshaw, Middle Taggleshaw and High Taggleshaw.
