Lynch Knoll, Gloucestershire
Our first windmill – in our local area near Stroud, Gloucestershire. The wind turbine that started it all.
We completed building this windmill in December 1996. The culmination of a five-year battle to bring green electricity to local residents and businesses. Since it was built it’s been working day and night, proving the viability and benefits of wind energy.
We keep trying to build more windmills here in Stroud to provide even more green energy but so far we’ve not been able to. We’re hoping that will change.
