Full Details

Times: 8am-12pm

The IHE North West and Northern Branches would like to invite you to an outdoor social event where you can enjoy the beauty of the scenic Lake District walks with the IHE (taking all C19 precautions where appropriate).

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 scenic route.

Walking time 4 hours
Length 12.3km / 7.6mi Ascent 803m

Meeting point Car park, Coniston LA21 8HU E: 329974, N: 497527
