Have Your Say: Turbines will look like pins
ADRIAN Davies's letter (Have Your Say, Oct 21) is the latest of a number which complain that the Atlantic Array wind farm would be an eyesore.
Let me make an obvious point: the turbines will be so far away as to be hardly visible, even when visibility is good.
Whether or not John Childs is right about the 120 days of clear weather is irrelevant. To test this sit in a comfy chair in front of your TV. Stick a small pin into something beside it. You have to look twice to see the pin.
That is how a 150m high wind turbine at a distance of 22km (The distance I understand they would be from, say, Rhossili) would appear on a clear day. The blades would be too thin to see, but you may see them flashing if the sun was shining. Furthermore if viewed from sea level only the top three quarters would be visible due to the curvature of the earth.
