Controversial plans to put 20 miles of pylons across parts of the Lake District National Park in West Cumbria have come under fire, as campaigners took their banners up Black Combe in the Duddon Valley.
The pylons would carry electricity from a new power station near Sellafield. The National Grid is still deciding whether it can afford to put some of the cables underground.
The National Grid plans to erect 75 pylons to take electricity for 20 miles from a proposed new nuclear power station near Sellafield.
Putting all those cables underground would cost an extra £450m, adding around 40p a year to the average electricity bill in England and Wales.
The campaigners think it would be worth the money.
The National Grid is considering placing sections underground but hasn’t made a final decision.
