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.
We sat looking up to Tarnclose Crag, beside Bleamoss Beck, 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.
