During the open day visitors learnt about how turbines fit into the landscape around them and took part in an ecology trail around the site.

There was also an interactive climate change science show from ExplorerDome – ‘an immersive experience for children of all ages’.

Local resident Jackqui Fairfax, who took her grandson toddler, Grayson, to the open day, said: “My grandson loves the turbines and one of his first words was windmill.

“It’s important to spread the word about renewables and to educate the future generation.”
