A walk along Coniston Water


The final morning of my short break in Coniston, I decided to spend a few hours taking a walk along the lake. It was a grey day, but still pleasant walking beside the water.

Starting near the jetty I cut across to Coniston Hall and then followed the lakeside path through Torver Woods before retracing my  steps before paying a brief visit to the village and heading back to Shepherd’s Bridge to collect my car and set off back home.

    • Good observation 👍 Coniston Hall was the home of a wealthy landowner so not unlike Wuthering Heights in that respect. The style is typical of The Lake District / North Lancashire and the moors of north Yorkshire aren’t too far away

    • Me too, but many years ago during my fist stay in Coniston when I was a teenager (and Coniston was still in Lancashire! 🌹) then later in my mid twenties. These days though I prefer the comfort of a good b&b 😉

    • Yes, a much easier walk! And very scenic. John Ruskin used to live on the other side of the Lake. I snapped a photo of his house, Brantwood, but didn’t include it in the post
