Westmill wind farm, Watchfield 1st February 2008
Newly-erected, these five turbines stand with their blades feathered as generation has not yet commenced. I believe that is scheduled for later this month. Only the nearest two turbines are in this square, the rest are in SU2391. They are lined up such that they form a south-facing line, presumably the better to catch the prevailing wind which is between south and west for much of the time. The farm is owned by a co-operative of 2000 individuals and companies.
