    Ours was the marsh country, down by the river, within, as the river wound, twenty miles of the sea.

    Lovely looking pics - now I'm really jealous.

    I take it from the hammocks and the quantity of kit you were camping out?

    Also - the stove looks interesting. Is that for cooking or just for warmth and something to look at? Interesting design.

    What is access like on Coniston? Also - any interesting features and / or camping spots?

    Cheers for sharing.

    AH Yes we were camping but dont tell anyone,
    the stove is home made and does all the things you mention,I,m hoping to make them up in bulk in the future,burns for hours on very little fuel,just needs refining.(the design not the fuel)

    access on coniston is good most car parks have easy access

    hi Wayne
    Some more pics of the stove showing size compared to a 30l barrel,
    I've since altered the front opening to allow it to contain more fuel.
    I'm in the process of getting them made out of a single outer tube,this just happened to be an experiment that went right
