Swarth Fell TarnOn the ridge between Wild Boar Fell and Swarth Fell in Mallerstang in the Eden valley is an unnamed tarn shown on Walk 28 in Alfred Wainwright’s ‘Walks on the Howgill Fells’ pictorial guide.

Now, following an initiative by Ron Scholes and David Pitt, president and chairman of the Pennine Journey Supporters Club, the Ordnance Survey have agreed to name the tarn Swarth Fell Tarn at the specific request of the local Mallerstang Parish Meeting and with the consent of the landowner.

Swarth Fell TarnThere was also support from Kirkby Stephen Walkers are Welcome group, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, the Yorkshire Dales Society and the Wainwright Society. The name will feature on maps of the area when they are re-printed.
