Product information

"From Tarn Hows, a place of populous resort, the great frame of the view is into Langdale; if you leave Tarn Hows by Tom Ghyll - towards the Yewdale road- you will have the Langdale Pikes framed to your complete and perfect satisfaction in the 'jaws' at the stream head" [Walking in the Lake District - H. H. Symonds, p248]
Tarn Hows (which apparently means 'small heights surrounding the lake') was artificially enlarged by a dam in the early 20th century, and planted with spruce and larch, some twenty years before Alfred painted this enduring Autumnal picture.
One of the few tarns accessible by car, it has fine views of the Langdale Pikes, illustrated so beautifully here amongst all of the lush flora and rugged landscape. It remains a highly fashionable place to visit.
