Saturday Ramble 30th July 2011 – Ashby Magna

On Saturday 30th July eighteen members and friends supported another successful walk from Ashby Magna.

The walk was a circular of the new wind farm at Gilmorton where there are four turbines, 400 feet in height. The turbines have not been commissioned because of difficulties of linking power to them.  Apparently a cable needs to be taken either over or under the M1 to get power to the turbines.  They are therefore inactive at the moment.
