Old Man of Coniston

Height : 820 Difficulty : moderate 3/5 Time Taken : 3 Hours

    info

    A short, but interesting linear walk with lots of industrial archaeology. Starting off above the village of Coniston with views out to Coniston Water and beyond, it climbs through old quarry workings, perhaps a stop at Low Water for a breather before the last section to the summit. You could carry on and do a longer circuit by dropping down to the Walna Scar road via Goats Water, but there's a danger you'll hurry and not explore. Whether you take your time, a short winter's day, or just an afternoon, there is a lot to see on this popular route.
