Hoathwaite – Coniston Water

After a relatively dry day, the weather had closed in and started to rain quite heavily, darkness had descended on the area.

The Team was alerted by CUMPOL ( Cumbria Police) regarding two female walkers on the Cumbria Way on the shores of Coniston Water.

Both ladies had become fatigued and with failing torches they were worried that they wouldn’t be able to make it to their accommodation

Two Team members took a vehicle and drove as close as they could and then met the two ladies on foot and escorted them back to the vehicle.

They were then given a lift to their accommodation.
