We don't want wind farm  

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Ramblers oppose the proposal to build eight wind turbines at Cotton Farm on the old wartime airfield at Graveley.

Each turbine will be in excess of 400 feet tall (125m) and will dominate and alter the character of the landscape of the Ouse valley.

Anyone walking the Ouse Valley Way would have these monsters in their sight from Huntingdon to St Neots and beyond. The Pathfinder Way would be even more adversely affected.

Apart from the inescapable visual impact, the right to quiet enjoyment of the countryside would be completely impaired by any person using this footpath and others around Graveley.

It is disappointing that the planning department of Huntingdonshire District Council did not consult with the local ramblers of this proposal even though it materially affects local footpaths.
