The Old Man of Coniston

The view from near the summit of the Old Man, looking down the zig-zag path to Green Banked Tarn.


We took the back route up to the summit past Dow Crag,

Goats Water, and up Goats Hause.

Then we descended along the zig zag trail shown on the first picture, which took us through piles of discarded slate – from the old Coniston slate mines.
