About Blelham Tarn

Blelham Tarn lies about 2.5 km (1.5 mi) north east of Hawkshead and 1 km (0.6 mi) from the western shores of Windermere, at an altitude of 46 m (151 ft). Along with the adjacent bog, it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its undisturbed habitats which support a wide range of invertebrates, including some rare and uncommon species. The reed-fringed tarn also attracts waterfowl including the whooper swan and great crested grebe and the waters hold mainly pike, perch and roach; however, fishing is controlled by the Windermere, Ambleside and District Angling Association and restricted to members only. Blelham Tarn's outflow is Blelham Beck to the north-east, which drains into Windermere.
