National Grid - Project to remove pylons from Roundway Down. 

National Grid's plans to remove up to 12 pylons and around 4.5km of overhead electricity line near Roundway Hill and the Millennium White Horse in Devizes are being brought to life through a new interactive 360° virtual tour.

The once in a generation project will transform the landscape by placing electricity cables underground to greatly enhance views north of Devizes.

The North Wessex Downs scheme is currently one of only four locations in England and Wales selected for this pioneering landscape improvement project.

National Grid wants to hear what you think about the plans. To find out more, please take a look at the project’s website at northwessexdowns.nationalgrid.co.uk where you can visit the virtual tour, sign up to a free webinar and send your feedback.
