Stately setting is protected

Elizabethan landmark Hardwick Hall has been spared from proposals for a windfarm on nearby farmland.

The National Trust, which owns the Grade I listed stately home near Chesterfield, feared the development at Palterton would have damaged the hall’s setting.

Bolsover Council decided to reject Losk Lane Wind Farm Limited’s application for the development.

The National Trust said the turbines would have ‘dominated the views’ to and from Hardwick Hall, which attracted more than 210,000 visitors in 2012.

Denise Edwards, general manager for Hardwick Hall, said: “We believe the impact on local communities and natural or historic landscapes should be very carefully considered when deciding on such developments. It is hugely reassuring the conservation setting of the hall has been protected.”
