Substation Images


National Grid have proposed siting a substation in the landscape around one of the north Essex villages of Twinstead, Wickham St Paul, Gestingthorpe and Castle Heddingham.

On 23rd November 2011, National Grid organised a visit to Eaton Socon Substation for councillors and council officers to enable them to judge for themselves the visual and environmental impact of a substation.
