SU4006 : Power lines between the Dibden Inclosure and the Hythe by-pass, New Forest

taken 12 years ago, near to Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire, Great Britain

Power lines between the Dibden Inclosure and the Hythe by-pass, New Forest
Power lines between the Dibden Inclosure and the Hythe by-pass, New Forest
Looking NW along the clearing between the Dibden Inclosure (left) and the Hythe by-pass (right). The power lines, which connect Fawley Power Station to the national grid, were there before either the inclosure or the by-pass, so perhaps this gap must have been deliberately left for safety reasons? There are some groups that consider these power lines an intrusion on the beauty of the Forest, representative of the use of the Forest as a soft option for the location of "unsightly infrastructure". Still, if you want electricity... are underground cables viable?
