Blelham Tarn

Today we left the car near Outgate and completed a circular walk, taking in Blelham Tarn. The weather had been very wet for several days and we were anticipating a very boogy walk. We started on the bridleway just north of the village which took us through Spicka Coppice and soon gave us views of the tarn and the area of wetlands around it.
We started alongside a stone wall, giving us views towards Wray

... although the gorse was beginning to wake up in places

Looking back at the tarn

Looking towards the Langdales and better weather
To the east the weather was coming down

Looking back towards the tarn and Latterbarrow
