A spectacular drive from Keswick, take Braithwaite turning to go up the Whinlatter Pass, turn right at High Lorton to pass Crummock Water and Buttermere then up Honister Pass the slate mine is at the top. Didn't go in the mine but the shop is stocked with lots of items made from slate, I especially liked the slate water fountains outside the back of the shop, the café is good too and they must have the best loos I have been in! We finished our circular drive down the pass, through Seatoller and up the Borrowdale Valley back to Keswick.
