Leisure and tourism
The creation of the Lake District National Park in 1951 provided a boost to tourism, with attractions such as the Ruskin Museum and ferry services across the lake developing. Coniston is a popular spot for hill-walking and rock-climbing.
There are fine walks to be had on the nearby Furness Fells and Grizedale Forest, and some of the finest rock in the Lake District on the eastern face of Dow Crag, 3 miles from the village.
The London chauffeur services have noted in the last vacation Break , many youth loved this place and have travelled here by the taxi hiring the chauffeurs for their convenience. The Grizedale Stages rally also takes place in Coniston, u
sing the surrounding Grizedale and Broughton Moor (or Postlethwaite Allotment) forests. The village is also home to a number of hotels and two youth hostels, one at the edge of the village, the other in the nearby Coppermines Valley.
The village also has a football team, Coniston AFC, who play their home games at Coniston sports and social centre. The village is twinned with Illiers-Combray. The French village is associated with Marcel Proust for whom Ruskin's work was a source of inspiration.
Coniston is also a beautiful place,nice walks from village to Coniston lake. Enjoy refreshments at Bluebird Cafe or the local pubs. If you like hiking,try "Old Man Coniston",its a moderate walk with lovely views. The village church is worth a visit.
The most notable feature of Coniston Village is The Old Man of Coniston, rising dramatically behind the houses when seen from the village centre. Coniston is a good centre for walkers and climbers, and those wanting to investigate the Tilberthwaite Slate quarries.
What's the distance around Coniston lake? If you want to walk around the whole lake using the Cumbrian Way trails it is around 16 miles in total. When I travelled from London Heathrow Airport to Coniston I visited all the main locations in this place.
Coniston Water is the fifth largest of the lakes, at five miles long, and with a maximum depth of 184 feet. It provided an important fish source for the monks of Furness Abbey who owned the lake and much of the surrounding land in the 13th and 14th Centuries.
The sheltered northern end of Coniston Water is a haven for open water swimmers. The absence of boat traffic and the gently shelving shoreline means swimmers can enjoy the experience of “wild” swimming in a relatively safe environment. Access to the lake is at the head of Coniston via Monk Coniston car park.
Coniston Water is an example of a ribbon lake formed by glaciation. The lake sits in a deep U-shaped glaciated valley scoured by a glacier in the surrounding volcanic and limestone rocks during the last ice age.
Low water is a large tarn that is often half shaded by the slopes of Old Man, but it is also easy to approach and there are plenty of shallow areas for a safe swim or paddle. It's an excellent place for entertainment to all who visit this place.
