today's walk (Keswick rambling club): a walk from Torver

our starting point Wilsons in Torver

the path up from Torver

the Coniston fells come into sight with cloud on top

old quarry with a pool

a spectacular spot for a coffee stop

looking for a crossing point of Torver Beck ..

.. but we gave up and climbed up beside the beck - here looking down on Coniston Water

this bridge on the Walna Scar road gave an easy crossing

our coffee stop quarry from the other side

zooming in on the waterfall

looking back over the quarry to Dow Crag coming out of the cloud

attractive cottages just before we cross the main road

the Coniston fells now clear of cloud

looking up Coniston Water from our lunch spot

zooming in on the steam yacht Gondola heading up Coniston Water

looking back up Coniston Water from the lakeside path

foxgloves on Sunny Bank

looking back down Sunny Bank to Coniston Water

more foxgloves by the wall on Sunny Bank

on the bridge over Torver Beck

Torver Beck from the bridge

photographing the disused reservoir on the return leg

descending northwards

this old phone box has been turned into a fish tank

tea at Wilsons and the Torver Deli
