Westmill Wind Farm, near Watchfield
Westmill Wind Farm, near Watchfield
A wind farm consisting of five wind turbines on a former disused airfield near Watchfield. It took Adam Twine 17 years to bring this project to fruition, during which he formed the Westmill Wind Farm Co-operative Ltd to help fight the battle for permissions and finance. Adam, who farms locally, and who has been interested in green energy since studying agriculture at University, is also a driving force in the Westmill Solar Co-operative, which has set up a solar energy farm next to the Wind Farm.
