Stickle Tarn Update


Thanks for your interest and support in helping us pull together a consortium to purchase Stickle Tarn.

I have been overwhelmed with very kind responses and pledges of quit large sums of money from you all. However, after speaking with many locals who work for the Lake District National Park (LNDP) Authority, or who are involved with the tarn, it is clear that it is up for sales to reduce the liabilities of the LDNP rather than to raise capital for other projects.

Stickle Tarn For Sale


Stickle Tarn is one of the iconic features of the Lake District, it’s not just a tarn as for many it encompasses what the Lake District means to them. Their first Lake District fell walk, a first wild swim, an epic climb; it’s a place of inspiration that leads for many to a continued love affair with the Lake District.

The tarn has been put up for sale by the Lake District National Park Authority with a guide price of £20,000 to £30,000.
