Ovenden Windfarm Open Day cancelled

Having booked in for a visit to the existing Ovenden Moor Windfarm today at 10am, we turned up clad in our wet weather gear, only to be turned away by an Eon employee.

Needless to say that having not been told about the cancellation, we were annoyed at being turned away. However, we were told that due to the health and safety risks from the thunder and lightening in the area, no one is allowed within the windfarm.

Now that we have been told that directly by a windfarm employee, TMWAG would like to know if the Bronte Way will be classed as part of the windfarm, and will that too be off bounds to the public in such weather if our 4 turbines are given the go ahead????

An Eon representative has confirmed this afternoon that the entire event for Friday and Saturday has now been cancelled. However if anyone would indeed still like to take a visit to see inside a turbine, please get in touch with us at and we will try our best to arrange something for us as a group.
