    As i had never been to the lake district and we were so close we visited for the day from Sedbergh, it is only 10 miles. I had been warned that it would rain, and it did but not until late afternoon.
    We had a whistle-stop tour of the famous sights, but i saw enough to want to go back for a proper visit.
    Coniston was a lovely town and the John Rushkin Museum and its Malcolm Campbell exhibition was worth seeing. We also wandered around the cemeteries finding the graves of both the above gentlemen.

    Walk is about half mile from the pub and near the end can get slippery.

    If you like long challenge walks why not try the famous 3 peak challenge. The walk starts at Horton in Ribblesdale, you should aim to cover all 3 peaks in less than 12 hours.

    Walk is a very demanding but rewarding walk, which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent (694 metres - 2,276 feet), Whernside (736 metres - 2,415 feet) and Ingleborough (723 metres 2,372 feet)in a circular route. Starting from Horton you take in the peaks in the following order: Pe-y-ghent, Whenside & ingleborough. Look for the Ribblehead viaduct on the way.

    The walk is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long and takes in over 5,000 feet (1,600 metres) of climbing.

    We were lucky during our various walks in the Dales & the Nearby Lake District. We saw beautiful wild flowers and wildlife.
