  • Lake District

    Hopefully we are getting the car back this week. When we do I'm wanting to take it for a big run at weekend, thinking of a drive up to the lake district. Does anyone know of some good routes to take so I can have some highly awaited fun?

    Chris.

    snake pass is a gud road but busy during the day, best to hit that road early in a morning or late at night...

              Heres some pics of the road that is Honister pass, and pic with car in was from a while ago as there has been a few changes to car
              But google both road as there will be better pics and maps etc, and the two lakes that you will pass are crummock and Buttermere.

                  Honister pass is a good road as the pictures tell

                  A bit narrow at times , you have to concentrate on the twisty road so you need to stop to appreciate the views.

                      Chilli Orange Corsa BURG #009 has left the building. Loved every moment of ownership for the best part of 7 years.

                            well there been scary and bad things happen in the past few months for us up here from floods in my town and shootings in whitehaven, but really apart from all that its stunning round here!
                            Kirkstone pass is also a nice road
