The Old Man of Coniston

The Old Man of Coniston is a fell in the Furness Fells in the English Lake District and the highest point of the traditional County Palatine of Lancashire. It is at least 2,632.61 feet high, and lies to the west of the village of Coniston and the lake, Coniston Water.

The Old Man of Coniston is a Lake District legend, even if the name is slightly curious. It turns out that “Old Man” is derived from “Alt Maen” meaning “High Stone” and the Coniston part comes from the Old Norse “Konigs Tun” or King’s Farm.
