Pylons to be removed in four protected areas in UK: BBC News, 15 September 2015

Electricity pylons are to be removed in four areas of England and Wales to reduce their visual impact on the landscape.

Overhead power lines will be replaced by underground cables in parts of the New Forest, the Peak District, Snowdonia and Dorset.

The National Grid has set aside £500m for the project.

Environmentalist Chris Baines, who helped select the locations, said it had been a “difficult decision”.
