Torver

Torver


A little more than a mile from the Cumbria Way, Torver is a small village at the junction of two main roads. It has declined in importance since Victorian times when it boasted both a railway station and a school, and when many of the inhabitants were employed in the various quarries and farms in the locality.  Most houses in the village are now holiday homes with the remaining residents struggling valiantly to maintain a sense of community


Set in a pleasant rural valley beneath the Coniston Fells, Torver is a popular starting point for walkers heading to Dow Crag and Coniston Old Man.  The eastern face of Dow Crag, overlooking Goat’s Water, is considered to be the best rock climbing crag in the Lake District, with over one hundred and forty recognised climbing routes
