Watendlath Tarn by Andy WallaceBlea tarn gill, 700 feet above Watendlath tarn, provides the tarn with its water. Water from Watendlath tarn flows into the beck of the same name and eventually feeds Lodore falls, and ends up in Derwent Water.

To reach the 863 foot deep tarn, turn onto Watendath Tarn by Martyn Buttona minor road off the B5289 and head to the hamlet of Watendlath. A number of footpaths leading from Borrowdale reach the tarn.
