Happy hunting

Just past Gatesgarth Farm at the southern end of Buttermere is the beginning of Honister Pass. It connects the Buttermere valley with the eastern end of Borrowdale valley. Rising to 1167 feet in height at the summit, it's one of Cumbria's highest passes. The road's gradient is 1 in 4.

Taking a horse drawn carriage over the pass was a popular trip during Victorian times. Men who took the coach were expected to walk up the pass from Seatoller (Borrowdale) to the summit to relieve the strain on the horses. Today's visitors use the summit as the start of a walk up to Great Gable or Dale Head (2473 ft). Flowing through the pass from the summit to Buttermere is Gatesgarthdale Beck.
