"The Coalition is tackling Brown's deficit – it now needs to tackle his energy policies," says Charles Moore.

Read this well written article about the government's energy policies by Charles Moore in the Telegraph online.

Fullabrook Down Wind Farm sub-station

This is a short clip taken from Knowlwater bridge, between Barnstaple and Braunton. The Fullabrook Down Wind Power Station cables have been laid on the hills, and now work starts on the sub-station, with the turbines believed to be coming sometime in the spring.

If you want to see what it was like here by the stream before the diggers moved in, , go to the Europe's Ill Wind website and click on the video link (you can see the bridge and fields beside it at about 2 minutes into the DVD)

For a map showing the locations of the turbines, go to this page on the Artists Against Wind Farms website.
