Day 4

Circular Walk Coniston to Torver returning along the Lake Shore

Todays walk is a circular route taking in a quick steep climb to the fell gate on the lower slopes of Coniston Old Man, where you wander along the Walna Scar Road (not a real road), picking up the track that takes you through the old spoil heaps from the slate quarries and leads you into Torver. Torver is only a small hamlet but can boast 2 pubs so is a good place to stop for a drink or lunch.  Once you have recharged your batteries follow a pleasant track alongside the beck passing the Old Mill until you reach Torver Common from here you will join up with the Cumbria Way and after crossing a wooden bridge and the main road the path brings you back to Coniston via the Lakeshore with lovely lake and fell views
