Stop for a number of walks and for nearby camping and caravan sites.
This is a floating jetty, held to the lake bed by anchor-weights. It means that it is easy to access the launches whatever the water height.
There is no road access and it is intended either for walkers, or for those staying in the nearby camping and caravan sites.
This jetty adjoins private land and we are grateful to the Hext estate for granting us an annual licence for its use. The adjoining woodland is a delight to walk in – and only goes to show how valuable it is that we should keep conifers in the Lake District as well as broad leaved trees.
You can either walk back to Coniston Boat Landings (45 mins walk) or, if you want a really delightful lakeshore walk, you can head south and pick up a launch at Sunny Bank landing (45 mins walk).
