Dear friends, if you are ever in the Lake District, do not take this pass. This pass was the most frightening thing Little Turtle has had to face in a long time! Hardknott Pass, with its steep gradient and narrow, hairpin turns, was scarier than the high bridge! As a historical landmark the road will never been widened, and The Girl is pretty certain that if it was the States, they’d more likely blast a tunnel through the hill than deal with that pass. Apparently even locals get stranded on that pass and need to be rescued!
