Plans to build a huge Zipwire in the Lake District have been rejected.
The owners of Honister Slate Mine wanted to build a 1035m long zip wire but the Lake District National Park Authority Development Committee turned down the plans at a meeting in Kendal, by seven to four votes against it.
The revised plans were for a shorter zip wire than the mile long structure that was turned down in September 2011.
Expert mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington is in favour of the Honister Zipwire application.
He's now asking the Committee at the LDNPA to approve the development.
People in favour of Zipwire application are now having their say at the meeting.
First up is Jan Wilkinson, one of the Directors of Honister Slate Mine and partner of Mark Weir.
He was the owner of the Mine and it was his idea to build the Zipwire.
He died in a helicopter crash in March 2011.
