The hydroelectric power station at Belper.
The hydroelectric power station at Belper.
Part of the Strutt's mill complex and turning Derwent water in to grid electricity. Turbulent flow is visible and noises from inside the building indicated that it was running.

In Germany I was once allowed to stand right next to the unguarded intake of a large turbine on load - hairy.
