Innominate Tarn

Two boys finding the perfect place and time, as the autumn leaves fall, for climbing trees. My tree climbing days are well behind me (not as much bounce-ability)  but this is a pleasant place to stop on Holme Fell. Although it looks like a natural tarn as it nestles
under the hillside, high on the fell, it was artificially created to supply water to drive haulage machinery for the old slate quarry below.  The Hodge Close Quarry closed in the 1960s but in an ironic twist of fate is now filled with water and a popular scuba diving destination.
