The Old Man Of Coniston and Wetherlam
The Old Man Of Coniston and Wetherlam

Overlooking Coppermines Valley to the south, and Wrynose pass to the north, it is the most northern of the Coniston Fells. A small cairn perched on rocks marks the summit.

Wetherlam appears in Arthur Ransome's book Swallowdale renamed as "Grey Screes".
