Heathers surround the tarn rank with aquatic plants, with water lilies and bogbean and mystery plants too far out to be sure of. I love this fell at any season, but on a hot summer’s day it is blissful. Especially with the prospect of an Atlantic weather front imminent.
Three of sat looking up to Tarnclose Crag, beside Bleamoss Beck having lunch, watching several tiny fish – dark fish swimming above a white stone in the water. What were these little fish? Was it a stone? We used one of my walking poles to touch the stone and it lifted free of the stream bed and a dead trout was caught up and carried downstream as if it were brought to life again. So, Bleamoss Beck is a trout stream.
