Winter Backpacking Weekend

Winter Backpacking Weekend
Coniston to Great Langdale, Lake District
January 2017

A weekend of great walks, wonderful pubs and good conversations!

On Saturday, we walked from Coniston to the Great Langdale campsite via Coppermines Valley, Hole Rake, Tilberthwaite, Little Langdale and Blea Tarn, in beautiful cold and sunny weather.

On Sunday, it was milder and damp and so we followed a low-level route back to Coniston via Slater's Bridge, Cathedral Cavern and Hodge Close.
