National Grid wants to put up huge new electricity pylons in and around the Lake District National Park.
National Grid needs to connect the proposed new Moorside nuclear power station at Sellafield to the electricity grid. We believe that it is not necessary to destroy the wonderful scenery in and around the Lake District National Park in order to supply power to the country. Their current proposals involve a line of giant pylons all the way south from Sellafield, past the historic village of Ravenglass, along the coast in the National Park, all the way around the beautiful Duddon Estuary, to finally cross the Furness peninsula to Barrow-in-Furness.
We strongly object to these proposals – there are feasible alternatives.
We also have two petitions available through links at the top of this page. Please support both.

Power Without Pylons is a local group formed to campaign for a pylon-free solution to connecting the proposed Moorside nuclear power station to the UK electricity grid. The group accepts the need for diverse power generation and welcomes the contribution Moorside will make to the local economy but seeks to protect the unique landscapes of the Lake District.
