Standing on the edge of the steep drop into Potts Valley, this site is an interesting place to speculate about possible higher water levels and long disappeared tarns. "Wath" is from the Viking for ford, although there's only a little stream now.
Expansive views towards the Lakes and the Pennines take in Sunbiggin and Rayseat.
450m NE of Mazon Wath - a short walk from the road.
