Zip wires and GoApe tree assault courses are best located in forest settings as they are in other parts of the UK.

This was the second rejection for the controversial plan by the Mine tourist attraction, which has divided local opinion since it was first conceived by late owner Mark Weir. The original proposal, which would have seen the construction of a 1200m zipwire running from near Pike's summit to the car park, was given the thumbs down in 2011.
Honister Slate Mine's revised proposal for a slightly shorter wire has now been refused too. 'The decision reaffirms the previous refusal' they go on, 'recognising that recreational activities reliant on man-made infrastructure and harmful to the landscape should not be allowed in sensitive locations.
