About this book

Cumbria has more tarns and small pools than most other counties in England and yet these special places are often overlooked in favour of the more well-known lakes.

Although tarns are synonymous with the Lake District, they occur across Cumbria and this book celebrates these areas of open water and the diversity of life which they possess. Ranging in size from that of a small lake to little more than a large puddle these spots of lue on the map reveal secrets about our landscape, are home to a range of remarkable creatures and have helped to shape human history.

This book has been produced by the Flora of the Fells Project in partnership with Cumbria Wildlife Trust and the Freshwater Biological Association. The Flora of the Fells Project aims to promote public understanding of Cumbria's mountain landscapes and how they are looked after. It is jointly funded by Friends of the Lake District and English Nature.
