Walking Log ... Walks including "Alcock Tarn"


Alcock Tarn
Bonny little tarn sitting on a small ledge half way down the side of Heron Pike on the Grasmere side. Previously called Butter Crags Tarn, it was enlarged and renamed in the 19th century by a Grasmere resident called Alcock, unsurprisingly.

Although it's at an altitude of around 1000ft., it is well worth a visit as it has a clear path up to it, and as well as being a beauty spot in it's own right, has stunning views, especially to the west.
