Boxing Day trek promises to burn calories
Bookmark and Share
Those who fancy enhancing their Christmas break with a walk in the Lake District can enjoy a trek run by national park rangers near Coniston.

Good walking boots are listed as essential by the authority, as is a packed lunch - which may or may not include left-over turkey.

Offering the chance to burn off a few calories after the inevitable excesses of the previous day, the circular walk starts and ends in the Monk Coniston car park at 10:30 GMT, lasting five hours.

The 5.9 mile route includes a visit to Tarn Hows, before passing through the grounds of Monk Coniston Hall on the way back.

Such a trek may be ideal for those who need the exercise but have perhaps consumed a bit too much to permit a more challenging and strenuous walk.

For people visiting the Coniston area who feel ready for anything, a steep hike through the Coppermines valley to the 2,635 ft summit of the Old Man of Coniston is one option.
