Barnwell Manor wind farm appeal rejected by Court of Appeal

Plans for four 300ft (91.4m) wind turbines on land close to a 17th Century lodge in Northamptonshire have been quashed by the Court of Appeal.

West Coast Energy applied to build on land at Barnwell Manor near Lyveden New Bield, home to an Elizabethan garden.

The firm tried to overturn a High Court ruling in March 2013 that the decision to allow the scheme was legally flawed.

The National Trust said the turbines were too close to its lodge. The firm is now considering what action to take.
