Join the campaign to stop Treetop Trek’s proposal to string multiple zip wires across the Thirlmere valley in the heart of the Lake District National Park.


Help us protect this special environment from an activity which will damage the natural beauty of this landscape, detract from the peace and tranquility of this beautiful valley and impose a significant human footprint across the place which ‘helped launch the environmental movement as we know it.’ (The Dawn of Green: Manchester, Thirlmere and Modern Environmentalism. [Ritvo, Harriet]).

On this website you will find full details of what the proposal is, why so many people, both locally and nationally, object to it and what you can do to get involved in the campaign to stop it becoming a reality. Be assured that if we do nothing this will happen. Make sure it doesn’t and join the campaign today.
