Mockerkin Tarn

Mockerkin Tarn is a small, picturesque tarn (lake) located near the village of Lamplugh in the Lake District National Park. It is a popular destination for walkers, fishermen, and nature lovers.

The tarn is said to be the site of a Celtic palace belonging to King Morken. The name "Mockerkin" is thought to be derived from the Old Norse word "mockri", meaning "marsh".

The tarn is surrounded by lush pasture and woodland. In the summer, it is covered in a wonderful display of white and yellow water lilies. The gentle outflow from the tarn eventually joins the River Marron.

There is a small car park at the side of the road near the tarn. From there, it is a short walk to the water's edge. There are also several footpaths that lead to the tarn from different directions.

Fishing is permitted on the tarn, but anglers must obtain a permit from the Lake District National Park Authority. The most common fish in the tarn are pike, eel, and perch.

Mockerkin Tarn is a peaceful and tranquil place to enjoy the beauty of the Lake District. It is a great place to relax and unwind, or to go for a walk or a swim.
