Although it's not named on the OS maps, being too small to even feature at all at 1:25000 scale, it seems a shame to leave this lovely little tarn off the list. Perched on a shelf beside the summit ridge of Hay Stacks, it appears to have no inflow nor outflow but remains full solely by the amount of rain which falls on the summit.
