The article reports on the opposition of the Campaign for the Protection of RurEal Wales (CPRW) to a plan by National Grid to establish a substation in rural mid-Wales. According to CPRW Director Peter Ogden, the substation and power line proposals may represent a shameful and depressing ending for mid-Wales' landscapes. National Grid's proposed new transmission schemes in England and north Wales are also facing opposition from eco-group Buglife and led to a legal action in the High Court.
