In October this year our application to build a solar farm here at Ransom Wood was agreed by the council planning department.
An area of approximately 1.22 hectares has been earmarked for the installation of over 2,000 solar panels and work will commence early in 2015. The site will be surrounded by a 2.5 metre high security fence.
The solar panels will feed the generated electricity into an existing substation and this will then be used to help power the Ransom Wood Business Park.
The planning committee members voted unanimously in favour of the plans at a recent meeting. Coun. Hopewell said “I’m in favour of any scheme like this. We’re looking at ways of getting more green energy. If its not going to have a visual effect, I wholeheartedly back this”.
Charles Cannon, Director of Ransomwood Estates, thanked the council for its vote of confidence adding; “We’ve spent 3 years looking at all possible renewable technologies and interviewed 33 companies before making our decision. We will now be producing 50% of the electricity used on the park from solar”.

Dr. Patrick Candler, CEO of Sherwood Forest Trust today pressed the virtual button to officially open a brand new three acre Solar Panel Farm at Ransom Wood Business Park.
Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
A great place
Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
