OH SO BEAUTIFUL ...........

It is a matter of opinion........

You may well like them.

That is your opinion.


So today, what with the weather being slightly drier, I got on my bike and headed off through copious huge muddy puddles to wonder at the joy of our new Wadlow Wind Farm.

What a load of bollocks.
How in the name of all that is Holy, can you call them a farm.
OK, they are sited at Wadlow Farm, but a wind farm?

Ooh yes farm it gives them that lovely green huggy warmy feel.
"Cos they are savin' the planet init!" 

Yep, they are called that
Is that spelt right?

And you can read all the Hype about it HERE

Anyway, here they are close up.
Well, as close up as you are allowed to go, what with all the danger, and keep out signs and only authorised personnel allowed and tons of other health and safety bureaucratic shite.

So, what does this wonderful development look like from close by.

Something horrible has been planted with the wheat..
It's a bit Jack and The Bean Stalk.
Except this is Jack and The Renewable Beanstalk.

At the top is a BIG BAD GIANT of some foreign energy company.

Even the photo, does not really show how big they are close up

Fee Fi Fo Fum
I smell the blood of an English subsidy!

So, which do you prefer?




Remember, that these are NOT the big ones.
Well, that is a JCB just to the right.
This chart shows a graph of this turbine against a stack of JCB's
And we only have 13 of them, NOT the 53 (it might be 33), of the really big ones, planned for the Balmacaan Forest in Scotland.

But we are slowly being overrun by metal monsters.

Well, that's it.

I did have a nice bike ride though, despite the views


  1. We go on about spoiling the hills but this lot are just as bad. Awful destruction of a beautiful landscape.

  2. Sadly, there are loads round here once you get into the Fens.

  3. Miserably depressing stuff, Sir.
    I wonder how the larks will fare. This place used to be teeming with lark-song. I can see the Lark Ascending being cut short, mid twitter.
