The Kentish Flats Extension wind-farm (1)
The Kentish Flats wind-farm as first constructed was a 6 x 5 array of turbines, work being completed in 2005. The extension (completed in December 2015) added two more 'columns' of turbines to the western end of the original array, and an extra 'row' to its south side - taking it further inshore towards Herne Bay and Whitstable.

The photo was taken from a point about 500m east of the Red Sand fort, sighting along the 'column' of turbines at the western end of the installation. The view is roughly south-east, towards Herne Bay.

I was unable to find fully satisfactory OS grid references for the wind-farm extension. My reckoning is that the western extremity falls in TR0977 - and I have done my best to plot the location of the turbine nearest the camera (the most westerly in the whole array). Advice would be appreciated!
