Welcome to Coniston Parish Council

Coniston is a village in the county of Cumbria within the southern part of the Lake District National Park beside Coniston Water, the third longest lake in the Lake District.

Coniston grew as a farming village and serving local copper and slate mines. During the Victorian era it developed as a tourist location partially through the construction of a branch of the Furness Railway which closed in the late 1950’s / early 1960’s.

Coniston Parish Council meet the third Monday of the month at the Reading Room, Coniston Institute, Yewdale Road, Coniston.
