- Coniston, Lake District
Join Get Out Get Active for a guided walk around Coniston Water. Nestled in the heart of the Lake District, Coniston is a popular spot for walkers to visit.
On the Western shore of one of England's largest Lakes, Coniston is a charming village. Coniston Water is a relic of the last ice age and Arctic Char fish still inhabit the lake.
Coniston, and the lake which takes its name, Coniston Water, are definitely jewels of the Lake District. Nestled between the lake and the “Old Man of Coniston”, the highest mountain in the valley, the village is a picturesque mix of whitewashed houses and rows of workers cottages built on the hillside, and fashioned from the local green slate traditionally mined here.
We will explore the countryside around Coniston with two different distance walk options. There will be opportunities en route to take photographs and appreciate the views. The walk will finish with some free time for you to explore Coniston's shops and cafes before we return back to Leeds.
