The highest fell in the Coniston range, often
referred to as Coniston Old Man.
The ashes of our dog, Angus, are scattered on
the top of The Old Man. It was a fell we climbed together many times - please
spare a thought for him should you make it to the summit and if you listen
carefully, you may be able to hear his barks carried on the wind...
The Old Man of Coniston.
This slate plaque is a simple tribute to our dog
where his ashes are scattered. It is out of view unless you are looking
for it - 100m to the south of the summit, in line with Beacon Tarn and
facing south. Update 16.03.11...The plaque has now disappeared
Looking over Levers Water to Black Sails and Wetherlam

Looking across Low Water, Levers Water and Wetherlam
to the eastern fells from the summit of The Old Man. The zigzag path is
the popular tourist route.
Made it! Connie, aged 5, at the summit of The
Old Man of Coniston.
