Photographer's Note

Another photograph taken during a wonderful and friendly TE meeting in June, 2011 in Cumbria, this time of the Tarn (or lake) at the tiny village of Watendlath which sits high between the Borrowdale and Thirlmere valleys at 863 feet (263 metres) above sea level.

Watendlath Tarn is 7 acres (28,000 square metres) in area with a maximum depth of 56 feet (17 metres). It was given to the National Trust by Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise, in memory of her brother, King Edward VII. The tarn is stocked with brown trout and rainbow trout and is a popular fly fishing water, with wading and boat fishing used. This was one of two small boats which were moored at the east end of the lake, just a stone's throw from the village and only a hundred yards or so from the packhorse bridge.

You can see a larger version of this picture here on "beta" TE.
