About Levers Water

This natural tarn was dammed in 1717 originally to provide water and power to copper mines below, but now supplies water to Coniston and the surrounding villages. It stands at an elevation of 457 m (1,500 ft) on Brim Fell and has a depth of approximately 38 m (125 ft). It is easily accessed from Coniston, taking the path towards the Coppermines Youth Hostel which passes the attractive Levers Water Falls or from Wetherlam; alternatively, it can be visited via a short detour from the ridge linking Coniston Old Man with Brim Fell and Swirl How.
