New gate at Knottallow Tarn

New Access to Knottallow Tarn

During 2015 the Association has gone some way to address the problems of disabled access. Obviously, because the Tarn is surrounded by agricultural land, the very nature of this land precludes any work in this area.

However, the access to the field has been considerably improved by removing the stile and providing a level approach through a Kissing Gate.

The Kissing Gate and new Field Gate were procured from George Barker & Sons of Backbarrow.
