Campaign has come into being to help inform the fight against
the despoliation of the stunning landscapes of Northern England
with the erection of WIND TURBINES across Fells and Dales. With
a height of 125 Mtrs (410 Ft) to blade tips turbines overlook
and dominate the beautiful views across the hills, valleys and
coastlines of Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire.
This STOP website
is intended to support local communities affected and inform
all interested parties who share our concern of the impact that
these turbines will have, not just on a special local landscape
but also on the environment and livelihoods of the entire area.
We do want to ensure that the information that we present on
this STOP site
is accurate. We will use wherever possible Government statistics
and quote all our sources. We don’t pretend to be anything
other than partisan about this issue. We are not interested
in compromise, meaning smaller or fewer Turbines.
We intend that as much of Lakeland avoids the
fate of areas such as the Furness Peninsula where the proliferation
of turbines continues apace with both new farms and the replacement
of current turbines with the new generation of larger versions.
(see MAPS & Cumbria under Siege).
These proposed turbines are a straightforward case of financial
gain for the Developers and for the landowners. Many of us are
in business and we understand profit. However, for those of
us living close by, they will damage our landscape, our lives
and the value of our homes. In short, they will damage our local
communities whilst providing no effective contribution towards
our country’s energy needs.
We encourage you to join our mailing list so
that we can keep you better informed with regular email bulletins
and breaking news as it happens. Don't worry we will not share
your name or email address with anyone and we absolutely will
not send you any junk mail.

Appreciate the Scale of what is being proposed
These photos give
you just some idea as to the scale of construction in
erecting the new generation of wind turbines. The turbine
masts illustrated are smaller than those
proposed for Ellerside and Stribers.
