Yew Tree Tarn
OS Grid ref:- SD 322004
Beautiful Yewtree Tarn, dominated by a stately clump of ancient yews, is the most easily accessed of the Lakeland Tarns as the road from Coniston to Ambleside goes right by it. The circuit round the tarn makes a pleasant short walk. The tarn was formed when Yewdale Beck was damned in the 1930's. It is well stocked with brown trout.
There is a small roadside car park by the tarn.
