The Day Jimmy Page Prevented the Electricity Board From Erecting Pylons Near Boleskine House

The Boleskine House Foundation, the organization that has undertaken the amazing, extensive restoration project of Boleskine House posted this on their FB page today:

“Archived photo by Dougie Corrance, Inverness 1971, leaving the Town Hall is Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and to his right, Malcolm Dent (campaigner) and to his left, artist Barry Colby, who created the image of the Hermit on Led Zeppelin 4 album. This was taken during the court case Jimmy brought against the Electricity Board, and succeeded in preventing pylons spoiling the landscape around Loch Ness. It was an informal meeting in the Rose Street Hall. So the only “court” involved here is the court of public opinion…and Page won. This was during the time when Page owned Boleskine House.”
