Urswick Tarn

URSWICK TARN

Urswick Tarn is now under the management of Urswick Parish Council.

We work closely with the Environment Agency, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, and the Parish Residents to ensure we find the right balance to:

  • Protect and maintain the Tarn
  • Protect and encourage wildlife
  • Provide a valuable amenity for people to use

 

As we progress on this journey we will update you as to how you can help, and become involved in the management of this very unique asset
