Welcome to 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.

Notices: Great British Spring Clean:

The Parish Council will be joining this national campaign organised by the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign. We will be running a pilot litter pick on Friday 26th April starting at Bouth Village Hall at 10.30. This will only be an hour or so your time and we will be offering tea, coffee and biscuits by way or reward at the end as well as asking for your views on whether this is something we could usefully repeat in other areas of the Parish. We will provide litter pick tools, gloves and reflective vests and arrange for the disposal of the litter collected. We hope you will join us on the day!
