Coniston, Lake District


Another place we visited during our trip to the Lakes was Coniston, a little village that is home to the third longest lake in the Lake District (Coniston Water) and Coniston Old Man. The Old Man of Coniston is a mountain that reaches over 800m. We were going to climb it whilst we were here, but with it having rained and the hills being shrouded in mist, we didn’t think the views from the top would be that good – so that’s a trip for another day.


While walking round the lake, we came across Coniston Hall which is owned by the National Trust, but sadly not open to visitors. The hall is a grade II listed building dating back to the 16th century.
