Devon's landscape and tranquility under even greater threat

Now that the Fullabrook turbines in North Devon are up, and visible from as far afield as Yes Tor on Dartmoor, news here of a flood of applications for smaller turbines, as well as some larger ones too.

As noted earlier in June, a couple living near the newly operational turbines at Great Torrington say they will have to move because of noise disturbance, and more recently there is already concern about the level of noise that the Fullabrook turbines are making during their testing period.

Devon's greatest asset was its landscape and its areas of peace of tranquility: they are both being destroyed at alarming pace.
