Scalebarrow Tarn was a moorland tarn on Scalebarrow Knott, in the eastern fells. The operative word is "was" since it has silted up so much that it's little more than a slow stream in the middle of a marsh. It can be spotted because where it was is a shade darker and greener than the surrounding fell - but that's as far as it goes.
