Levers Water, a turn on the Coniston fells 1923 & 2011
A few years ago I bought a watercolour painting by Cuthbert Rigby RA, RWS (1850-1935) titled "Levers Water, a turn on the Coniston Fells 1923". I visited the same spot in 2011.
Cuthbert Rigby was born in Liverpool and initially apprenticed to an architect at the age of 15. He had his first painting accepted by the Royal Academy when he was 25. He was also a book illustrator and published his own book "From Midsummer to Martinmas - A West Cumberland Idyll" in 1891.
Levers Water in Cumbria is a naturally occurring tarn, but was enlarged by a dam in 1717 to provide water and power to the coppermines below. It now supplies water to Coniston and the surrounding villages.
