Tom Tarn is located on Dixon Heights, to the south-east end of Newton Fell. It's not an overly attractive tarn, looking rather stagnant. The only item of interest (to me) was that it would appear to have been on the boundary of two farms at some point - since the wall is built right through the tarn, splitting it in two !
