Building site at the top.
by paddyhillsbagger  23 Feb 2013
Walked Gibbet Hill as part of completing the Nth Wexford area and found the top relatively easily by following the other commenters routes. What they didn't come across was the building site at the top for a new wind farm. A stones throw from the trig are the works offices, an access road and the foundations for a turbine. The trig and nearby cross look swamped and abandoned in a sea of earth works.This work is ongoing as of Feb 2013 and access will possibly be restricted during construction.
