SN7890 : Hyddgen

taken 12 years ago, near to Afon Hyddgen [water Feature], Powys, Great Britain

The valley of Hyddgen lies at the very heart of Welsh history as it was here in 1401 that Owain Glyndŵr, the last true Prince of Wales, fought his first historically significant battle against the forces of the Crown (mostly Flemish) and won. Because of its remoteness, it is serenely quiet and peaceful and is probably little changed from the days of Glyndŵr, apart from a few fences and farm buildings. Given its history, it should be recognised as a place of special significance.

However, none of this is considered to be important by the subsidy-seekers of SSE Renewables who plan to place huge wind turbines on the hills to the west of the valley. Turbines which will be the tallest constructed anywhere in Britain. But, of course, the construction can only proceed because the Philistines in the Welsh Assembly have decreed that this area is suitable for windfarm development.

Any Welshman who colludes with, or facilitates this vandalism should be ashamed to the bottom of their hearts.
