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
