We are thinking of moving to a house which is about 50 foot from an electricity sub-station (inside a smallish brick built building - approximately garage sized) owned by EDF Energy. You sometimes see these on housing estates or fenced off close to houses with signs that say things such as "danger - risk of electrocution" etc.
Would the proxmity of this stop you buying the house? Are there health risks with living so close to such a substation which you can't avoid (I don't mean risk of electrocution which you can avoid by not going near it)- particularly for children e.g. leukemia/cancers? Is this the same risk as living near electricity pylons? Even better does anyone know an expert in this field I could discuss this with to help us assess the risk before we make a possible mistake.
