The Three Shires Inn gets its name from the location two miles away where the boundaries of the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and Lancashire met.BleaTarn House courtesy Lakeland Cam


At the head of the valley is Blea Tarn. Stone built Blea Tarn House, built in the 1600s, sits nearby. Wordsworth in his poem Excursion: Book Second: The Solitary wrote of the house:


And one bare dwelling; one abode, no more!
It seemed the home of poverty and toil,
Though not of want: the little fields, made green
By husbandry of many thrifty years. . .
