What else can I do that isn't part of a standard pilgrimage?
Quite a challenge to come up with something in the same league. After due consideration came up with the following.
1) Find Arthur's rock near the Miners' Bridge.
2) Scramble down the precipice.
3) Wade across Church Beck to the foot of the waterfall.
4) Find the hidden entrance to the trial adit.
5) Explore the same.
Coniston Copper Mines: A Field Guide... by Eric Holland is a useful reference.

As an alternative, I hear that tea and scones at Brantwood is highly recommended.
