Loughrigg tarn
How to get here
Approach this tarn from the A593 from either the Coniston or Windermere side. Like near-by Hodge Close, this site lies between these two mighty lakes, as do a large number of other tarns i might add here!

Yo are looking for the Skelwith bridge, but watch for the "Tarn Foot" sign and head for it. You can photograph this tarn from the road as per our photos seen above.

Carry on following this winding, and difficult road, whilst watching for Touring coaches that can swing out on the bends causing crashes.

Supplies: If you need any supplies on the way, pick them up at Windermere or Coniston villages. If you fancy a stay at the Highly reccommended Tarn Foot camp site with the Tarn Foot farm able to supply milk & eggs according to reports - so maybe there are Napoleon Wrasse in this tarn? :-).

Parking above the tarn, as we did, or at the Camp site is best.

Unfortunaterly, we have not had the pleasure of this tarn and we have no reports to date of any Buds having dived here.

The Dive
Only a guestimate here buds.
a 200 metre shore entry, you'll find this is all silt

Hazards to Divers
Unknown - there could be small coils of old barbed wire, and possibly broken glass as per any body of water in the lake district.
