Group firmly opposed to wind farm proposal 

Credit:  The Courier, www.thecourier.co.uk 18 May 2011 ~~

It has come to our attention that a wind farm development, comprising 10 turbines, is being proposed for construction on the Gask Ridge in Perthshire.

This site is the location of the oldest and northernmost linear frontier defence system known to have been constructed by the Romans and is linked to other internationally important Roman sites such as Ardoch, by Braco.

Indeed the Gask Ridge could be considered the prototype for later and greater structures such as the Hadrian and Antonine walls.

We would like to serve notice on the landowner concerned, Perth and Kinross Council, Holyrood politicians and the development company involved, that we are resolutely opposed to this development and will be using all aspects of the democratic process to frustrate and block it.

In so doing we will be cooperating at both national and international level with professional academics and history societies as well as assisting local community groups in their opposition plans. The direct and indirect threats to both individual archaeological sites and the general historical ambiance are just not acceptable.

To quote an ancient Roman commentator ‘we will not negotiate with a hostile force on Roman territory’.
