Next morning we went to the Derwentwater Pencil Museum. It was a unique experience knowing about the history and origin of pencils especially the various stages involved in the evolution of pencil in its modern form- the mines , ores and various stories associated with pencils. There is an entry fee for each visitor visiting the museum. You can also win pencils as souvenir if you return a filled in questionaire with correct answers.

Eskdale
I have documented my journey to Eskdale in my part 7 Youtube video. It was a journey through mountains, valleys and passes. We had already booked our stay at YHA Eskdale.

Snowdonia, Wales
After a long day's drive we reached YHA Snowdon Ranger in Snowdonia.

We had not planned much for Snowdonia. We drove by the Slate museum and around the valleys and stopped at the Hebog Beddgelert for a sumptuous meal.

Last day in the UK
On our return journey we visited the Stonehenge using a travel hack which allowed us to view it from a closer distance. This travel hack is available on the internet in which you use the Fargo road to reach the Stonehenge from the rear side(How close can you get to Stonehenge if you don't... - Stonehenge (tripadvisor.in) ). This was planned at the last moment while we were at the YHA Snowdon Ranger the night before. Otherwise it would cost £25 per person and extra for parking your vehicle. Watch my latest video on this visit(
)

This is the Fargo road which is a gravel road. This road leads to the open fields and you can park by the road side and cross the field to the view point.
