Honister Slate Mine appeal against decision to reject zip wire plan

Honister Slate Mine are going to appeal against the decision to reject plans for a zip wire.

A planning committee at the Lake District National Park Authority threw out the proposals at a meeting yesterday (Wednesday 9th January).

The Mine which is already a tourist attraction and has a via ferrata climbing wall, wants to build a half mile long zip wire in two parts running from Honister Crags to the car park.

Planners at a meeting in Kendal rejected the plans over concerns about its impact on the landscape.
