Near Ilfracombe, North Devon
A beautiful morning on the hills near Ilfracombe. As we stood and watched these blades go by, we could see Wales across the sea, and the coastline towards Lynton, as well as the hills of Exmoor. How could anyone have dreamt that such industrialisation would be forced upon rural Devon - in the name of environmentalism?
And just by the way, for anyone who has watched Windfarm Wars, the blades coming to the Denbrook Valley near Dartmoor will be bigger than these ones. All the better to be seen from Yes Tor, of course.
