ELECTRICITY company bosses are planning to move overhead power lines at Castle Hill - and put them underground.
They want action at the Almondbury beauty spot before a kite flyer is injured or even killed.
Kite flyers regularly meet at Castle Hill, attracted by the strong gusts and wide, open plateau.
But twice this year, kites have become tangled up in power lines just below the summit.
On July 23, a Thomas the Tank Engine kite was found in the lines at the bottom of a valley about half a mile from the hill.
On that occasion, more than 2,200 homes lost power for three minutes as the kite was removed.
On March 21, a power kite landed near the same spot, with its strings draped over the lines.
While there is no law banning kite flying at Castle Hill, numerous signs warn people about the dangers.
Yorkshire Electricity spokeswoman Ann Walker said of moves to put the cables in the earth: "If people stopped flying kites in that area this wouldn't be necessary. But people are putting their lives at risk."
However, she said even laying the cables underground would not provide a perfect solution.
"When they let go of the kites they go flying down into the valley," she said.
As Castle Hill is a scheduled ancient monument the process of diverting the cables may take months.
It could cost about £10,000 to re-route the 100-metre line.
But because of the sensitive nature of the site, that price may rise dramatically if the use of mechanical diggers is forbidden.
Workmen might have to dig the trench by hand.
A Yorkshire Electricity statement said: "We urge anyone visiting Castle Hill to take notice of the sign advising them not to fly kites, for their own safety."
If kites do get tangled up in overhead lines the owner should ring 0800 375 675.
