Coniston is a village and civil parish in the Furness region of Cumbria, (formerly Lancashire) England. 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; about 18mi north east of Barrow-in-Furness.Geography and administrationConiston is located on the western shore of the northern end of Coniston Water. It sits at the mouth of Coppermines Valley and Yewdale Beck, which descend from the Coniston Fells, historically the location of ore and slate mining. Coniston's location thus developed as a farming village and transport hub, serving these areas. Coniston was situated in the very north-west of the historic county of Lancashire, with Coniston Old Man forming the county's highest point. Today Coniston forms part of the Lake District National Park, the administrative county of Cumbria and the local government district of South Lakeland.
