Glyncorrwg Action Glyncorrwg

Unite against turbines

I live in Croeserw and I had beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

Now I cringe at the view from the rear of my home - 16 gigantic wind turbines on the Abercregan Mountain, like something out of a science-fiction film.

To make matters worse, the Spanish company Gamesa plans to erect another 10 turbines on mountains in front of my house which will be nearly twice the size of the ones already standing - in fact, the largest in Europe - and another four of this size on the Glyncorrwg Mountain, which is to the rear right of my house.

Croeserw and Cymmer will be surrounded by wind turbines, which will be seen through the whole of the Afan, Llynfi and Garw valleys if this proposal goes ahead.

The people of the Valleys must unite and say NO! to this rape of our beautiful countryside.
