Hydro Water Power at Carr House Farm,,,
Now this is really a chicken and egg situation and we are just starting to make progress into finding out what has to be done so we can generate our electricity from the stream which flows at the bottom of the garden. We have been in touch with the North York National Parks and have now visited Bonfield Ghyll where we were kindly shown around by the owner. This was the first one of its kind in the country and is working very well. The family are not on the grid so it was a good thing for them. Apart from it being very interesting to see the hydro turbine working, we had a lovely ride over the Moors and saw quite a few grouse- they were too quick for me to get the camera out. The heather carpets the moors with its vibrant purple no wonder people come from all over the world to see it. We will keep you posted on how we are getting on to produce green power and the feasibility study we will have done.
