Coniston Waterfalls

Monday was wet and windy but with loins girded we set off for Coniston village where we parked the car and set off for Yewdale beck.


We walked under Yewdale Fellside and took the road up towards Low Tilberthwaite and the quarries.

The Yewdale Beck was followed and crossing the river onto Tilberthwaite Gill. There was some concern about crossing the Gill but we saw two others make it look easy and we followed using the stepping stones. In clear and less windy weather the walk could have gone over Wetherlam but not today.



Why the brush?




Bracket fungi





We had lunch behind a handy rock looking back to Birks Fell. The path was then followed to the bwlch and on down along Hole Rake overlooking the Youth Hostel and eventually back to the car.
