Offshore wind farms create 'reef effect' perfect for wildlife
Offshore wind farms create 'reef effect' perfect for marine wildlife - especially seals - “Things like barnacles and mussels will settle on hard structures and then that in turn will attract other marine species and it builds up over time.”
Winnat Pass (the name is a corruption of 'wind gates') is in the High Peak area of Derbyshire. It lies in the National Trust's High Peak Estate. The road winds through a cleft, surrounded by towering limestone pinnacles. The narrowness of the road and its 20% grade has caused it to be closed to vehicles such as buses and coaches. The road regularly features in the Tour of the Peak cycle race each autumn.
