A Unique View of the Lakes

Entrepreneur Mark Weir is a man with a dream: he wants to build a giant zipwire ride from a mountain in a beautiful, remote part of the Lake District, not far from the slate-mine he owns. Born and raised just a few miles from the mine, he believes an attraction like this will see tourists visiting from all over the world, having a positive effect on the local economy. Today, he takes filmmaker Richard Macer up in his helicopter for a unique view of the mountains and lakes below.
