Wind Power, 1796

Over 200 years ago, here in Thornton wind was the main power. Now we seem to have gone full circle. We are told we need to harness the wind again. The trouble is that the new windmills, are quite large, dominate the skyline and are quite pointy. The debate goes on locally and nationally. I can understand the need for alternative power but I can see the need for a beautiful place to remain so.
