Coniston Village 1/5

Coniston is a village and civil parish in the Furness region of Cumbria. Historically part of Lancashire, it is located in the southern part of the Lake District National Park, between Coniston Water, the third longest lake in the Lake District and Coniston Old Man, the mountain peak just left of centre here. The mountain is popular with tourists and fell-walkers with a number of well-marked paths to the summit, no doubt Alan and Frank have trod those slopes at least once over the years.

 

For a long time now we've been talking (Maureen's been talking) about replacing our old shed of well over 20 years age in the back garden with a proper Summer House so we (she) can sit out and enjoy the garden. At long last we (Maureen) have (has) decided to get one so the other day we (she) went out and bought one and it was delivered, the old one taken away, and the new one erected in its place. I must admit it does look rather nice, now all we need is a decent spell of weather to enjoy it.

I like you conversion, Brian...but, where is the beer fridge! smile
Brian Walbey: No electric I'm afraid, have to carry the beer in from the kitchen smile
Yep, been there, climbed that! I do like the shed/ summer house, Brian, I had plans for one before I moved house.
Brian Walbey: I guessed you would have climbed that one Frank. We have talked about getting the summer house for a long time, better late than never.
This is a really lovely photo - the light is very pretty! YAY for you (Maureen), and the wonderful addition to your (her) gardens!
(Can I just say how proud I am that people put up photos of mountains and Frank can say he's been to the top!)
Brian Walbey: We have talked about getting the summer house for a long time, better late than never. I thought Frank would have been to the top of that mountain, and many more besides no doubt.

Superbe paysage.
Brian Walbey: All of our Lake District is beautiful in its own way.
I bet Maureen would like to have the top view, too, while sitting out in her new shed, Brian. BRAVA.
Brian Walbey: Not only Maureen, still her garden, which she works very hard on, is a good substitute.

The new shed will be a fine sun lounge Brian. Maureen will be ably to keep nice & warm in it, and they do say (ha ha) the weather might improve
Brian Walbey: WE did sit in there for a while on the only sunny afternoon since it was erected. It has to pick up soon, we are off to the Peak District for a few days two weeks tomorrow!

What a wonderful view that is, Brian. And is there a mountain to be found where Alan and Frank hasn't been???
The new Summer House looks great and good of Maureen to have it installed and taken away the old one. Now I hope you (Maureen) don't (doesn't) have to wait another 20 years for good weather...
So to see you had a sunny day when you took the picture.
Brian Walbey: Coniston is a delightful little village, I thought Frank would probably have been to the top of that mountain, I'm still waiting to hear from Alan. We did sit in there for a while with afternoon refreshments on the only sunny afternoon since it was erected. It has to pick up soon, we are off to the Peak District for a few days two weeks tomorrow!

When descent weather kicks in you will be able to sit out there with your pot of coffee and ready your copy of the Morning Star.
Brian Walbey: Yes to the first bit, definitely no to that choice of newspaper Chad, when one has worked as many years as I did for Lord Hansons group of companies the Morning Star would be definitely a no no!
I can picture you with a cooling glass of lemonade Brian

You will both have so much pleasure from Maureen's new summer house. I wouldn't mind your old shed!!
Brian Walbey: I hope we get time and the weather to sit in there quite often, it has to pick up soon, we are off to the Peak District for a few days two weeks tomorrow! Our old shed was dismantled the hard way by the erectors, a few blows with very heavy hammers, seemed quite sad really.

Lake District - I think I should consider Lake District.

That new shed is already in the sun - it may be the start of the decent spell.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy our Lake District Louis as long as you get the right weather, our week last July wasn't really the best for that. We did sit in there for a while with afternoon refreshments on the only sunny afternoon since it was erected.

I remember such lovely views in Cumbria. Your new shed looks wonderful with much light streaming in. Chris should learn from you and replace his bench- finally!
Brian Walbey: Yes Coniston is set in a lovely area. Maureen is very happy with her Summer House, it will no doubt get used a lot during the summer months.

Your old shed looks to be in far better condition than mine; I would have had it. The new shed looks like it ill need to be kept tidy in view of all the glass. Its certainly not "out of sight, out of mind".

You are right about the Old Man; somewhere I have an image of this Old man on top of that Old Man. My favourite self-catering cottage is not too far away.
Brian Walbey: Actually the old shed was in good condition but had started to rot around the bottom where the rain runs down. We are pleased we now have a proper summer house, it will get used for sure.

A very scenic view.

Hope you have lots of sunny days to enjoy your new shed.
Brian Walbey: Coniston is quite a nice little place, shame it is a bit of a distance from the lake.
The shed is a definite improvement!
Brian Walbey: We've wanted a proper summer house for a long time, we should have got it years ago.
The shed is gorgeous, Brian (Maureen). I would love one just like it.

The grasses, mountains and everything in between is very eye-catching.
Brian Walbey: We've wanted a proper summer house for a long time, we should have got it years ago. Coniston is set in the mountains and is a lovely little village.
If it were not for the fence and the roofs that can be glimpsed it would seem a forgotten place.

Beautiful in new shed
