Our major campaign to stop 24km of 50 metre tall pylons being built across the national park generated more than a thousand letters in protest and extensive national press coverage, resulting in National Grid resolving to put new electricity lines underground through the western section of the Lake District National Park instead.

In the light of our fight against new pylon lines in the Lake District, in January 2024, in its latest policy on electricity infrastructure the government banned new overhead wires from going through protected landscapes.
