Say NO to Zip Wires across Thirlmere

Reason for signing

  • I’m fed up with the wealthy and powerful using the Lake District for their own commercial ends in a way which diminishes the natural environment and moves us ever closer to being a theme park. The numbers of people and vehicles the 8 wires would attract, coupled to the obtrusive and dominating impact of screaming individuals whizzing through the air (go and see the Eden Project if you doubt this) would be a significant imposition on the area and dramatically change its character.
