Full description

Wapshott, E. + Morris, B., 09/04/2013, Land at Coombe Farm, Iddesleigh, Devon (Report - Survey). SDV355676.

Mons Hall and Barn, both Grade II Listed buildings, lie on a south-facing slope at the junction of two small valleys; it there is direct intervisibility with the proposed turbine site, and the turbine would interrupt its views to Iddesleigh. There would be some local blocking from trees and hedgerows; impact assessed as negative/moderate.
