Coniston Old Man

Coniston Old Man, which is 803 metres high and about 40 kilometres away, is seen here from the old tram shelter which still stands on Walney Promenade at the junction with Central Drive. You might not have seen this view too well, up to forty years ago. Where the shiny new Furness College now stands used to be the ironworks, and it could be hard to penetrate the murk.

  1. This is more education for me as I never knew it was a tram shelter. I may have been told at some point but cannot remember. I also cannot remember the number of times I have passed it but it must run into hundreds.

    It’s not a very inspiring building and given that it has escaped the demolition that has gone on in Barrow one wonders if it has listed status.

    I think the Ironworks had well closed 40 years ago but the Steelworks was still going – I think !!
