    Ahh, it was worth a thought though Martin, didn't realise that houses were already being built, thank goodness it is being used for something! I hear that Honister Mines have just just submitted a new plan for a zip wire..........

    Perhaps hoping that the furore over thirlmere may make Honister seem more favourable. A lot of the objections to Honister were based on environmental impact so presumably they have addressed those issues with their new submission.

    I still think The Lake District can do without any new zip wires, but at least Honister is still a working site with vehicles already using the fell access, and I think it is just the one line in the proposal, though I have yet to see the detail.
