Blot on the landscape 

We are delighted that the Hiraethog and Denbigh Moors Environment Forum hosts such a splendid website at www.hiraethog.org.uk and are promoting the region as a beautiful, tranquil and relatively unknown part of Wales.
But the members of the forum are hamstrung in their efforts, because Cardiff has decreed that the Hiraethog area will be home to 140 megawatts worth of wind turbines. That is another 165 turbines the size of those at Tir Mostyn.

No matter how hard they sell the Hiraethog as a tourist attraction, the fact is that these enormous towers hanging over walkers in the forest, and fishermen and sailors on Brenig, will put them off, and they will go elsewhere for their tranquillity. You cannot have wind turbines and unspoilt countryside, and there’s no argument about that at all.
