We have been disappointed to learn this week of the rejection of the ‘Honister Slate Mine, Zip Wire’ project. Heather & I both supported the plan as we felt it would be a great attraction to have in The Lake District, with a minimal visual impact on the surrounding fells.
The scheme has divided local opinion however. Mountaineer Sir Chris Bonninton is a supporter of the project and resigned as Vice-President of ‘Friends of the Lake District’ due to their views against the scheme.
