This message forum is a place for all to voice their concerns over the proposed construction and siting of 6 giant Wind Turbines along the beautiful Ellerside to Stribers ridge.
This site overlooks the exquisite Cartmel Valley with its rare and historic village and medieval Priory
The ridge commands one of Lakeland’s classic panoramas which encompasses the whole of Morecambe Bay to the South, the Furness Peninsula, Black Combe, and the Coniston Fells to the West, through to the Fairfield Range and the Shap Fells to the North, to Ingleborough in Yorkshire the highest point of the Pennines and the Lancashire hills behind Morecambe and Lancaster to the East.
Ellerside Ridge is extremely popular with walkers, whether they be on the top where the Turbines are to be sited or on the Cumbria Coastal Way which runs just below the Ridge line, overlooked by Turbines T1, T2 and T3 until the path actually meets Turbine T4 and passes by Turbines T5, and T6.
