Another bite at the cherry. This time weâ€™re exploring the area aroundBrotherswater before moving over to Grasmere a very popular area in the LakeDistrict, here in this guide you can experience Lakeland for yourself so ifand when you ever visit itâ€™ll be like coming home and as the fells see.
A Flying Tour of the English Lake District
There really is no other place in the British Isles like the English LakeDistrict and for anyone who uses MSFS 2020 and would like to visit the areaat sometime in the future thanks to the excellent Bing maps this is nowpossible and there is no better guide book available on the planet!
I have visited the area many times since my father first took me in hisnew Ford Anglia and saw Lake Windermere from the small town of Bowness onWindermere a very busy town even then. Over the years we drove all over theLake District visiting all the towns and seeing all the sights.
I carried on touring when I got my first motorbike, a BSA C15, when I was16, but it wasnâ€™t until I was in my twenties I started walking the fells, butnowhere near as much as Alfred Wainwright.
Wainwright spent his whole life walking and writing about these hills andmountains. It was he that gave me the inspiration to write these guides, butpersonally I find it much easier to actually fly them, definitely the bestway to view these mountains. I recommend the Nemeth Design 103 which is idealfor our type of slow visual flying. Even Wainwright said "I hope when I diethere is some kind of heaven, imagine flapping your wings around GreatGable".
In Volume 2 I have created a couple more fictional fields (and they areliterally fields) for us to operate from and I am starting our journey on theEastern Fells at Patterdale where we left off in the Volume 1.
A good days walk is anything from 3-12 hours hard graft and you have to befairly fit. We can cover the same area by air and see much more in 12-15minutes and that's not rushing so if you fancy viewing the Lake District asnever before try Westwood Walks Vol. 1. When all the volumes are complete youwill probably know as much about the hills as the great man himself.
