The Lakes - Alcock Tarn

Whenever there is guaranteed sunshine in the Lake District we try to get over there, and at Easter weekend there was such an opportunity.

 We have often walked along the old coffin road between Grasmere and Rydal Mount, and have passed the footpath sign for Alcock Tarn. On this occasion we went for the 3 mile diversion and climbed up to investigate the tarn. It's a bit of a struggle - the going up - but well worth the effort.

Coming down we saw this roe deer on the path, it seemed relatively tame, staying a discreet distance away, but not running for cover.
