The magnificent wilderness around Nant y Moch and Pumlumon in the Cambrian Mountains is highly cherished: a sacred, exquisite jewel
But this world class countryside faces a very shabby shameful threat
A planning application is expected by SSE Renewables to construct a large wind power station around Nant y Moch near Plynlimon in the Cambrian Mountains

So what have pylons got to do with it?
The developers think that the wilderness around Nant y Moch would be a good place to construct an industrial wind power station and erect an array of massive wind turbines. Any electricity generated would be taken away from Wales, transported for miles along pylons and overhead cables and then fed to the National Grid in England because they want the electricity
And what would that mean?
Abermule or Cefn Coch - construction of 20 acre approx substation hub
Montgomeryshire, Powys, Shropshire - erection of huge pylons and miles of overhead power cables
