Coach Trip to Coniston via Tover

Coniston is a village and civil parish in the Furness region of Cumbria. Historically part of Lancashire, it is located in the southern part of the Lake District National Park, between Coniston Water, the third longest lake in the Lake District and Coniston Old Man.

After a rendezvous at Burton services on the M6 for a comfort stop we continue on towards Coniston. It is important for safety reasons that  independent walkers leave details of your names and routes, and a mobile telephone number if possible,  with the courier on your coach.  

A   Walk       Leader     Anthony Fleetwood              10 miles      Strenuous

We alight the coach in the village of Torver. Our walk starts with a steady climb to Walna Scar Road, from here it’s a steep climb to Brown Pike (682 m) then on towards Buck Pike (744m) and Dow Crag (750m). We descend to Goat Hawse, and then it’s one last climb to “The Old Man” (803)m. From here we should get some glorious views. Then it’s all downhill to Coniston and a well earned drink.
