Pure Adventure Weekend

Plans are coming together for the Spirit of Adventure Foundation's Pure Adventure weekend. This will be held in and around Brantwood in Coniston, Cumbria, UK the weekend 9th -10th March 2013. From Brantwood on the shores of lake Coniston there are fine views towards the Lakeland Fells

The view from Brantwood House

Brantwood is the former home of John Ruskin. Ruskin (1819 - 1900) was a Victorian writer, thinker, artist, art critic, socialist and philanthropist.

Ruskin as a young man

The venue is well chosen because Ruskin and The Spirit of Adventure Foundation share common ground in terms of their beliefs about wilderness and wild places.

'Every increased possession loads us with new weariness'
