Colton Parish lies between Windermere
and Coniston Water in the southern part of the Lake District,
occupying an area of about 20 sq miles. There is no main
settlement in the Parish - it is a collection of small villages, hamlets
and farms across 3 valleys: Coniston Water and the Crake
Valley in the west, the Rusland Valley in the middle and
Windermere and the Leven Valley to the east. Click on the

BROADBAND: REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS!
The 'Connecting Cumbria' project is rolling out across Cumbria.
Colton Parish is expected to get 70% of properties connected to
Superfast Broadband (24+Mbps). We may get more properties
connected if they are registered business addresses. To help
with this, the Parish Council is developing a business register
(see link below).
list of business names started life from publicly available
information on the internet and shows businesses that are said
to be based in Colton Parish. If you would like to add details
of your business (e.g. by giving contact information, type of
services etc) so that they can be seen by local residents, then
please send these details to the Clerk at
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like the name of your
business removed from the list, please contact the Clerk. For
the latest information on the Broadband Campaign, go to

If you need further information, please
