Lingmoor Tarn

OS Grid ref:- NY309032

Lingmoor Fell is a long wide ridge between the valleys of Great and Little Langdale and rises to 469 m (1,540 ft), its highest point is at its western end above Blea Tarn.

The fell's name derives from the Old Norse word lyng meaning "heather covered".

The small isolated tarn is around 200 metres in length and lies about 600 metres north of the summit. It is surrounded with rock and heather and has a few small islands within it. The tarn provides stunning views of the Langdale Pikes.

The approach via Elterwater is relatively easy and has good paths.
