  • Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales logoThe Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (CPRW) is a Charity working throughout Wales to protect and enhance the landscapes and quality of life in rural areas. Since 1928, it has sought to increase awareness of the value of all landscapes and the benefits they provide by encouraging individuals to protect and become their stewards.

    CPRW defends those qualities which make Wales’ countryside and communities distinctive and challenges decision makers to ensure change occurs in the right way and in the right place and opposes it where it does not.

    "CPRW is delighted to have participated in and support this positive initiative by National Grid. As the uncluttered horizons of some of England and Wales’ most cherished landscapes begin to reappear, the success of this initiative will soon be reflected by what the public don’t see.

    "We also trust this initial undergrounding programme becomes the precursor to many more and as importantly prompts other utility providers to show how they too can remove their blemishes from the nation’s finest landscapes.”
