Colton Parish Council

Colton Parish is an area of some 20 sq miles between Windermere and Coniston Water in the southern part of the Lake District.
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 thumbnail image, left, for a map.  The photograph above (copyright, Teresa Morris) is taken from Rusland Heights (just west of High Dam) looking over the Rusland Valley to Bethecar Moor, Grizedale and the Coniston Fells in the background.
