Coniston Old Man is perhaps one of the best-loved fells among the Southern Fells. Keeping a watchful eye over the village and lake that share its name, with its equally famous neighbours of Swirl How and Wetherlam - essential climbs for any walker - the Southern Fells are an often-overlooked secret just beyond the crush of the popular Central Lakes, offering fellranging pleasure and challenge.

This route booklet is a full-size extract from The Southern Fells guidebook, which itself is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. This dedicated chapter on Coniston Old Man covers a variety of routes depicted on Harvey maps. The author's own topos and summit panoramas, not to mention breathtaking photography make sure that your ascent of the Coniston Old Man is one to remember. 

  • The route options are all illustrated with HARVEY maps, colour photographs, fellscape diagrams and panorama guides.
  • With alternative routes, height distance and timing information to tailor-make your outing.
  • Also covers information on all the Fellranger guidebooks, basic mountain safety advice, information on the Fix the Fells conservation project, an author biography and details of other Fellranger offers and products.
