Lake District, England: Sheep, Slate, and Sticky Wickets – Rick Steves’ Europe – Travel Bite

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 that doubles as a B&B, a tour through a still-functioning slate mine, and a local’s lesson in the bewildering game of cricket. #ricksteves #ricksteveseurope #england
