Walking in the High Furness Fells

Many thanks to our lovely fell walker and blogger – Alvina aka Reasonstogonorth for this latest blog near Coniston.

“The long evenings are here with us again and so even when walking can only commence after lunch there is still time for a walk.

The lower fells to the west of Coniston with scudding clouds and dappled light may not be so dramatic as the central fells but the open moorland bowls of Torver Fell have their own beauty and present their own challenges.

We did follow a route described in a cicerone book starting from a layby on the Greenodd to Coniston Road A5084. This mini horseshoe skirts around the sides of Torver common with the highest point being Beacon Fell 254 and about 5.5miles, so not long compared to recent conquests of Fairfield and Kentmere.”
