Hardknott Pass, Cumbria

Perhaps the steepest road in England
A cache by : jlik

This has not yet been found

The old Roman road known as the Hardknott Pass is one of the UK’s most taxing motorcycle roads. With a 1 in 3 gradient making it the joint-top steepest road in Great Brtiain, this is definitely not a route for the faint-hearted or those with little biking experience. The narrow, winding road can seem daunting, but those who rise to the challenge and reach the summit at 1,291 feet will be well rewarded. The single-track winds through the Lake District between Eskdale and the Duddon Valley, before the Wrynose Pass continues on to Ambleside.
