Carland Cross is a location in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, about six miles (10 kilometres) north of Truro at OS grid reference OS grid ref SW846539. The area comprises a hamlet and a large wind farm.
Immediately north of the settlement, Carland Cross traffic roundabout is the junction of the A39 and the A30 trunk road. To the east of the roundabout, the A30 is a dual carriageway road: to the west the A30 is single carriageway and to the south the A39 is also single carriageway. There is motorists' services area, including a filling station, by the roundabout.
Carland Cross wind farm is to the north of the A30 with road access from the roundabout. It is the second oldest windfarm in the UK after Delabole, and was built in 1992. It has 15 turbines manufactured by Vestas with a capacity of 6MW. Plans by the Spanish owned operator, Scottish Power, to upgrade and expand the wind farm to 20MW are opposed by a local pressure group called RATS (Residents Against Turbines). However, the repowering was approved in May 2012 and was due to be completed by early 2013.
