A tarn that’s no longer name­less

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - The View -

For mil­len­nia this lit­tle pool has sat, name­less, in the windy breach be­tween Wild Boar Fell and Swarth Fell in the York­shire Dales. But now it has a name. The au­thors of the Wain­wright’s Pen­nine Jour­ney trail have per­suaded Ord­nance Sur­vey to name it Swarth

Fell Tarn on their next re­print. It’s in hon­our of Al­fred Wain­wright him­self, who never un­der­stood why such a prom­i­nent pool didn’t have a name. Find it at grid ref SD753973. And find out more about the 247-mile trail at www. pen­nine­jour­ney.org.uk
