See Coal Clough Wind Farm

Found in the moors between Burnley and Todmorden in Lancashire, Coal Clough Wind Farm was among the first wave of wind farms in the UK and came on stream on 9th December 1992. The Farm boasts 24 wind turbines towering up to 154 feet above the surrounding countryside.

Your author has always thought there is something rather beautiful about wind turbines - even though they don't generate much electricity and its erratic when they do - but they never without controversy, and this is inevitably the case with Coal Clough, which Scottish Power plans to increase in size.
