Hi

If you mean, and I think you do, the the B5289, I can confirm there are some "cracking views". I haven't camped there but seen some vans there. It is very isolated though, but the free museum/shop/slate quarry at the top of Honister Pass is quite interesting.

regards

Not bothered about the road numbers,Its always been Honister Pass to me,and isolation is the reason for stopping there.There are " cracking views " but I didnt know about the " INTERESTING MUSUEM "

Hi

An "interesting museum", it's subjective, but I enjoyed it. Even if there's not a lot of it. And it was free, unheard of in the Lake District.

I have used this spot a few times
having a bedford rascal can just hide out of the wind behind the boulder :blink:
there there is also a good spot(if not better) at Newlands Hause
