Relaxing before the through trip - Coniston 2012

Coniston Copper Mines and playing in Church Beck – March 2012

As part of a walking and mining weekend in Coniston a cast of, well a few too many really, eventually descended one of Coniston’s copper mines on the Saturday.

We were lucky to have superb weather – more like August than March!

Unfortunately the mine trip was cut short after a nasty slip by one of the group, so we returned to the surface, but since we were already geared up it seemed a good idea to have a play in Church Beck on the way back down!

Sunday saw us walking up Coniston Old Man.
