The accompanying descriptive text is:-
BLEY-WATER TARN, FROM HIGH STREET MOUNTAIN,- WESTMORLAND. / Bley-Water Tarn lies beneath a lofty crag of the same name, forming part of the Mountain High Street. In its approach to the valley of Mardale, the stream from this tarn unites with that of Small Water Tarn, and both flow together northward to the lake of Haweswater. / The artist has alluded in this view to the annual, festivities which take place on the broad top of High Street. Horse-racing forms the principal feature in the sports, which derive no little additional zest from a copious supply of cakes and ale from the neighbouring villages. / Ulverstone lies in the distance.
