Lake District, England: Scenic Drive

Sep 18 2013 5 mins   1
Rick drives a 20-mile Lake District loop through pastoral valleys, over rugged mountain passes and beside peaceful lakes. Stops along the way include a family-run sheep farm which doubles as a B & B, a tour through a still-functioning slate mine, and a local's lesson in the bewildering game of cricket.
