Lake District walk takes in Coniston tarns
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to pick up their trekking poles and enjoy exploring the mountain tarns of the Lake District may be interested in a walk being organised by the national park authority on August 1st.

Starting in the village of Torver outside the Parish Room at 10:00 BST, the trek is a linear one that takes in Goat's Water and Seathwaite Tarn, which lie beneath the summit of the Old Man of Coniston.

The route covers 7.9 miles in 6.5 hours and there is a £3 cost for a minibus to bring participants back to Torver from the walk's finish at Seathwaite in the Duddon Valley.

Walking equipment is listed as being essential and those taking part have also been advised to bring a packed lunch.

Those exploring the fells in the Coniston area can encounter a range of tarns while they go walking.

Among these are the tiny Boo Tarn and Blind Tarn, while to the south of Torver are Lang Tarn - the smallest named tarn in the national park - and Beacon Tarn, which has inflowing and outflowing streams just a few feet apart at its southern end.
