Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Better opened as large version in New Tab.

This area is called Coniston Cold and in the distance you can see Coniston Hotel.

The Victorian mansion was built in 1851 for silk mill owners the Garforths, who were backers of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. The house became associated with bad luck and tragedy when James Garforth died after a fall from a staircase while the house was still being built.

His daughter inherited and it passed through her marriage to the Tottie family, who later ran a school - but of the eight Tottie children who grew up in the house in the late 19th and early 20th century, none went on to have children themselves.

In 1969, the house was bought by wealthy Michael and Ethne Bannister who were forced to demolish the neglected, old hall and rebuild it using some of the original stone.

The family spent considerable time developing the estate while living at Coniston Cold. They opened a trout fishery, smokehouse, farm shop, tearooms, shoot, quad biking course, Land Rover driving experience, conference centre, spa and restaurant.

Now, the hotel has become a popular wedding and events venue. You can imagine, there are amazing possibilities for wedding photographs.

I will add a slightly different view as a workshop.

I wish you all a happy day, Bev :-)
