Some Tarns in Cumbria and the Lake District

Most experts agree that there are sixteen lakes in the Lake District. There are many other pieces of water, called tarns. Although some tarns are bigger than one of the so-called lakes, most of the tarns, however, are very small, and some are not even named.

Here are pages about a few of these, and some of the reservoirs in Cumbria.
