    We can see the wind farm from our fields at Naseby. I’m told they’re not turning because they can’t get power to the grid, they forgot to buy the required land… Any idea if this is true?

      Hi Andy
      There are 2 stories that I’ve heard around here – one is that the link to the Grid goes under the motorway and requires extra work – that later schedule was always the case. The other story I heard is that the local ‘thieves of things metallic’ made off with the cables.
      The latter story is reasonably credible as they have nicked the copper cables to Gilmorton a few times and left the whole village with no phones or internet. (Which has been very difficult as quite a few folks work from home in Gilmorton)

        These turbines have now been running for the last week. So I guess ‘all systems go’
