On March 20th, I blogged about our friendly neighbourhood wind-farm, and published a photograph taken in the main street of Gilmorton, Leicestershire, showing a partially completed turbine towering over the village. And I expressed my relief that although close by, the turbines were not visible from my own village.
Sadly, I had not reckoned with the fourth turbine, now in place. As you see in the picture, it towers over my village, viewed down the Gilmorton Road, just as badly as the (different) one seen from Gilmorton. And the road provides a direct route to funnel the infra-sound into the heart of the village. (The turbines are not yet commissioned, so we have not yet experienced the sound). Thankfully the turbines are still not visible from my own house, but they create visual intrusion for many homes, and for all those with a southerly aspect.
And a Gilmorton up-date: where one unfinished turbine was visible in my March 20th photo, there are now two completed turbines with a direct sight-line through Main Street.
