Innominate Tarn

Innominate Tarn - Awarded and Published
Image reference number AP0024

Innominate Tarn is a small tarn in the northern Lake District National Park in England.


The tarn is the location where Alfred Wainwright's ashes were scattered

"All I ask for, at the end, is a last long resting place by the side of Innominate Tarn, on Haystacks, where the water gently laps the gravelly shore and the heather blooms and Pillar and Gable keep unfailing watch. A quiet place, a lonely place. I shall go to it, for the last time, and be carried: someone who knew me in life will take me and empty me out of a little box and leave me there alone. And if you, dear reader, should get a bit of grit in your boot as you are crossing Haystacks in the years to come, please treat it with respect. It might be me."

~ Alfred Wainwright - from "Memoirs of a Fellwalker" (1990)
