|Blea Tarn above Haweswater|
Author: David Ramshaw, P3 Publications
Book Title: unknown
Blea tarn above Haweswater has a Roman road that was used by the Border Reivers for their raids into this area.
Around 1850, this was used by the locals to race horses on local feasts and holidays. During one event some of the locals amused themselves with a little fox hunting.
This ended in one man called Dixon, falling some 1000 feet from the top of Blea tarn. He hit many rocks on the way down and suffered terrible bruising as well as being scalped, but no broken bones and survived to tell the story.
