Armistead Wind Turbines

Farming couple lose wind farm court battle

Rebecca and Brian Barnes had asked a judge to quash a Government inspector's decision last July to grant planning permission for the erection of six wind turbines, each likely to be 100 metres tall, on a 208 hectare site to the east of Crosslands Farm, Old Hutton, Kendal.
