Honister Slate, Honister, Lake District
At the summit of Honister Pass is Honister Slate, a working slate quarry and tourist attraction. Beside the quarry is a popular youth hostel, which has wonderful access to nearby trails that lead to some of the best walks in the Lake District. Old quarry buildings abound in the hills above Honister. Here''s an old hut built largely of slate, that appears to grow right out of the hillside.
