Britain’s most picturesque scenery could soon be home to hundreds of miles of giant electricity pylon lines according to documents recently published online by the Government and National Grid. The documents show plans to place 160ft electricity pylons across Snowdonia, mid-Wales, the Lake District and other well-preserved parts of countryside.
The documents show planned pylon development and include many previously unpublicised schemes added to existing proposals. The new lines are required to transmit electricity from the growing number of wind farms which are mainly in remote parts of Britain.
