Sethos Lionheart has created Wythburn at Thirlmere for people to explore, enjoy, and share. There are all manner of interactive things to find and do, places to sit and enjoy with friends or alone. All the areas were created with the original Wythburn in mind.
A brief history. In 1894, “Conifer clad Thirlmere reservoir, in the shadows of Helvellyn, provides the city of Manchester with it’s water and was created in 1894, when the area was dammed and flooded, submerging the Lakeland villages of Amboth and Wythburn.” The names of places in and around Wythburn in Second Life come from names of places in the original Wythburn, England. There are walking and riding paths throughout the area.
