A Nice Green Leaf: Pylon PS - Your Best Winter Pylon Walks

453pxgoonhilly_arthurBy Emma Townshend

A friend just emailed to say her favourite winter "pylon walk" was over Goonhilly Down on the Lizard, where the pylon factor is the Earth Satellite Tracking Station - known by those of us old enough as "Telstar", after the first satellite to be tracked from there. She says: "Not only can you stare at the beautiful dishes, pointing up at orbiting satellites, but there's a huge windfarm too and there's that weird noise the whirling blades make in the wind." And a two ton menhir if I remember rightly.

What's your recommendation for a raw-cheeked walk combining wild countryside and advanced technology?
