Lest We Forget – Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 13th November –  This Sunday the annual Remembrance Day service will be held on the summit of Great Gable.

Every year members of the public and fell walkers park at Honister Slate Mine to start their walk up the magnificent Great Gable, where a service and two minutes’ silence will be held.

Once on the summit, you can view a bronze tablet which was placed back in 1924, inscribed with the names of those that had fallen and lost their lives in the First World War. Ever since it’s placement on the mountain, walkers and climbers have made the hike to the summit to conduct an annual service to pay their respects.

Upon your return to Honister, our Bait Cabin Cafe will be open, and serving bacon butties, homemade cakes, hot drinks and much more, why not pop in and finish your walk off with a hot drink.
