World speed pioneer Donald Campbell set several water speed records on Coniston Water, before he was tragically killed while attempting to set another record. His boat, Bluebell, overturned at speed and Campbell was killed. His body was lost for many years before it was finally retried from the waters of the lake. He was buried beneath this simple gravestone in the overflow graveyard of Coniston church.
