Three Brethren turbines plan is the height of arrogance

The Three Brethren have stood in splendid isolation on Yair Hill since 1600.

For over 500 years people have been coming to this area by horse, bike or on foot with a view to enjoying the peace, quiet and isolation of the place.

What arrogance to think we have the right to erect eight turbines over 100 metres high within 200-300 metres of the Brethren. What right have we to disturb the wildlife, vegetation and tranquility of the place with eight concrete structures whose shelf life is 25 years, whose efficiency at producing electricity is dubious and which do not work when the wind is too strong or non-existent?
