Ramsbottom and Scout Moor Wind Farm
When this picture was taken you can clearly see in the distance, on the moors above Ramsbottom, the ongoing construction of the Scout Moor Wind Farm.
Five newly constructed turbines can be seen out of a total of 26 that were constructed during early 2008.

In the foreground is the town of Ramsbottom, with the now demolished Mondi paper mill in the centre of the picture.
