Coniston Water, Lake District, England
Steam Yacht 'Gondola' on Coniston Water
This evening, I am posting information and images concerning Coniston Water in the English Lake District. This lake, which is some five miles long and half a mile wide, has associations with:
- Arthur Ransome, author of Swallows and Amazons; and
- Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell, a father and son duo who between them set a series of speed records on the lake with Donald killed in a record attempt in 1967.
