Anywhere in/around southern (ish) Lakes going to be dry this monday/tuesday/wednesday?
Staying near Coniston with 15 students who signed up for a climbing trip...
Failing any dry rock, any good wet weather activities? Will obviously plan a few walks with those who swing that way.
We've already thought of simply drinking more in the evenings, but some more constructive activities would be good.

canyoning is always do-able in wet weather.

Grizedale forest is always worth a visit and a good place to do team building activities. they also have a Go Ape there.

Mountain biking in Whinlatter forest

in failing either of these you could always go to the Hawkshead brewery.

I'm not that far away from Coniston at the moment and so my current answer is...
Well this rain needs to stop - met office is saying light drizzle at the moment - drizzle my ****.

Orienteering is an activity/sport where the weather doesn't matter. There might be some permanent courses around somewhere. Bike hire at Grizedale or up north in Whinlatter sounds like a good wet weather alternative.

Swim across the lake?

There's a permanent orienteering course at Tarn Hows.

Do some classic multi pitch Diffs? Quick pitches or moving together so you don't get cold/board. Tell them it's training for the Alps ;)

Cheers for the advice everybody, unfortunately a lot of it came in when we we're already off grid in the Lakes, so we decided to take Ian's advice and spent monday afternoon in the pub.
Tuesday was spent going for a soggy walk while others made the decision to go climbing inside at Kendal.
Some dry rock was discovered on Wednesday in the form of Castle Rock.
A great trip all in all.
