June the 7th 2008 was an historic day on Scout Moor as construction of the wind farm came to an end.
At 11:00 the first of the three blades were attached to Turbine No 23.
Ground crew engineers are seen here preparing the first turbine blade for the lifting operation to attach it to the hub.
Construction of the wind turbines began back in November 2007 at Turbine No 16.
