Westwood Walks in the Lake District Volume 1
Surely there is no other place in England like The Lake District. Here in such a small compact area lies the jewel of the English Crown. So many mountains and fells, a lifetime’s work to map them. Alfred Wainwright did his utmost by writing seven volumes of guide books. I in my own little way am going to try and show you that same beauty from a slightly different perspective. A number of years ago I started to show you the beauty with my Flying Bike Tour in FS2004 but graphics have improved since then and will no doubt continue doing so in the future.
Many guide books have been written about the lakes even long before Wainwright first visiting The Lake District. The first I think was written in the mid 1700’s. William Wordsworth wrote quite a few guide books himself but then complained there were too many visitors! The best known today are the seven volumes of Wainwright’s Guide Books. Today thanks to computers I myself have the capability to give people around the world some idea of what The Lake District has to offer and together we can learn as much as we can.
It is very difficult to compartmentalise The Lake District so we will occasionally re-cross footpaths from different directions but that will just add to our knowledge as we learn together. I will also tell you a little bit about the history of the areas that we will be flying over so you will know even more.
This package includes Kris Pyatt’s Altramax aircraft for you to fly; this is the best possible aircraft for this type of exploration, offering excellent visibility, very short takeoffs and landings and perfect slow flight handling. The package also includes scenery, flight plans and a complete guide book in PDF format.
Each flight takes about 30 minutes and explores the area starting from the Far Eastern Fells and exploring across the whole of the Lake District.
To get the most enjoyment out of this you are going to need either Megascenery England and Wales, Just Flight’s photographic Scenery Vol. 4 or Playsim’s Vol. 3.
