Help stem march of wind turbines

First published in Letters by

READERS will have heard Energy Minister John Hayes’s comments on wind turbines peppering the British countryside, referring to them as an “atavistic echo of dark satanic mills”.

The attempted invasion of Ryedale’s countryside by oversized commercial farm turbines has begun. We are now fighting this on the Wolds.

While 256 feet is three times higher than Flamborough Lighthouse, planning agents have submitted a turbine application of this height for Willerby Piggeries, near Staxton village and close to the international golf course at Ganton.
