Map of North and Mid Devon
View North and Mid Devon Wind Turbine Sites in a larger map
Here is a link to a pdf produced by rwe-npower renewables showing the exact route of the Atlantic Array cable from landfall to sub-station. This is a pdf, and the map is on Page 3. Page 2 shows the location of the windfarm in the sea - it will be visible from Mynydd y Gwair (Swansea) and Ilfracombe, Lundy, and much of the North Devon Coast. A point worth making is the fact that the 22 Fullabrook turbines are visible from Dartmoor: the Atlantic Array could have anything between 188 and 417 turbines, and will be visible for many miles.
Just to give you an idea of what is happening to Devon... on the map above use arrows to zoom out, this view is focused on the Alverdiscott area (see below for links to more news about sub-station and Atlantic Array)
A single turbine has just been approved near Bishops Nympton (not yet on this map)... so many turbines are coming it is hard to keep track of them.
