This turbine was refused unanimously by local parish councils and by South Lakes District Council in December 2012 but went to appeal. The appeal was allowed by Inspector RPE Mellor in December 2013. It is now constructed and will be commissioned on 26/10/14.

It is sited in distinctive Drumlin Field landscape of which the Cumbria Landscape Character Guidance says "This well composed landscape will be conserved and enhanced to retain its distinctive characteristics." It is only 775m from the centre of Lindal-in Furness and will supply power to the Colony candle factory and to the grid.
