The amount of energy generated by wind turbines might be debatable, but what’s clear is that the location of proposed wind farm sites often fuels heated argument in the outdoor community. Our seminar in North Wales in September will examine the BMC’s position on this divisive topic.

We’ve restructured the BMC Access & Conservation Trust; in the coming months we’ll be letting you know how you can contribute to ACT’s work to protect your cliffs and mountains.
