SD2896 : Coniston Water

taken 6 months ago, near to Bowmanstead, Cumbria, Great Britain

Coniston Water
Coniston Water
A view of the north end of Coniston Water from an unfamiliar angle. The righthand most house on the far side of the lake is Brantwood, where the poet John Ruskin lived. Travelling north (right to left) we come to big houses now used as outdoor education centres, Thurlston and Low Bank Ground, good memories for me where many New Years have been welcomed in. Tarn Hows Wood is in shade but Guards Wood takes in the sunshine. Coniston village is just hidden by the ridges and vales of the Furness Fells.
