Satron Tarn

Satron Tarn

Satron Tarn, situated between Oxnop Scar and the much larger Summer Lodge Tarn, must surely rank as the smallest named tarn in the Yorkshire Dales.

Indeed it is so small that my friend and I almost missed it completely as we were making our way from Oxnop Common across to Summer Lodge Tarn. This was back in early 2007 and I can’t even remember now if we bothered making the short detour from our route to visit the tarn. Certainly the only photo of Satron Tarn I took would suggest that we did not – probably because we were eager to press on to Summer Lodge Tarn and our planned lunch stop.
