Protest over wind farm  

An anti-wind farm protest took place today – in the teeth of gale-force winds.

The gathering, organised by Joanna Lambert took place on White Horse Hill, near Uffington.

Mrs Lambert, 47, said the Westmill Wind Farm, at Watchfield was five stab wounds driven into the heart of the Vale.

She said: “Millions of people over the past 4,000 years must have walked along the Ridgeway marvelling at the intimate beauty of the Vale.

“Yet now five massive industrial turbines, with angry noisy blades cutting the air, will dominate the landscape for decades to come, and shatter the peace and serenity for those around.”

The co-operative which owns the wind farm raised more than £4.4m from the public to pay for the scheme. It will power 2,500 homes.
