Oldside Wind Plant- Damaged Turbine from Lightning Strike

The Oldside and Siddick windfarms are next to each other on the A596 route down the coast . The road itself runs parallel to the railway line - with the wind plant arranged in another line between the two. The Siddick wind plant is very close to the Carlisle /Workington railway line and poses a real risk to rail traffic for that reason. These turbines are not so close to the railway or the road - but still close enough. Both wind farms have the same sort of turbines and are owned by the same company - Wind Prospect.
