How hideous will these pylons be?

According to this report in the Eastern Daily Press, National Grid wants to build a major new 112-mile 400kV power line they say is needed to help the UK achieve its ambition of net zero emissions by 2050.

Where each of the huge pylons could be sited is to be revealed when an eight-week second public consultation begins on June 27.

The new proposed line would run south from an expanded main electricity substation at Dunston, near Norwich, down to Tilbury on the Thames estuary.

National Grid said the proposed new route broadly stuck to a previously suggested corridor parallel to the A140.

Further south part pylons will be replaced with underground cables – through the Dedham Vale area of outstanding natural beauty on the Essex/Suffolk border.

However buried cables in Norfolk or taking the line down the coast offshore have been ruled too expensive.
