Approx. 2.5 miles away from Beck Hall

This beautiful glacial lake was the inspiration for Children’s classic The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby.

It’s the highest lake in England at 377m (1,237 ft) above sea level and is one of only eight upland alkaline lakes in Europe.

Walk up to the tarn from Beck Hall, or use its dedicated car park and set off on a woodland walk around it.
