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.
