Campaign against wind farm on High Wolds

A new campaign group claims the last remaining areas of open space across the ancient landscape of the High Wolds are under threat from a 20-mile arc of industrial turbines.

Stop Wolds Wind Farms (SWWF) says it has just been launched by a number of villages across East Yorkshire and is gaining new members all the time. It said twelve 126-metre turbines were planned across land covered with archaeological remains at High Wood, Tibthorpe and Energie Kontor and a further seven 125-metre turbines near Neswick.

Additional scoping exercises are underway in Cottam and Middleton areas. “These will extend across an area designated as Important Landscape, which is criss-crossed by major walks such as the Wolds Way and Minster Way and the recent, very popular, National Cycle Trail,” said a spokeswoman.
