I attended the Wind Energy Museum on a private evening visit with a local camera club. It was very interesting and there's quite a lot to see. I would recommend a visit its very educational and the staff are very informative especially in matters relating to the local area and the Norfolk broads in general.

This place took a lot of finding but eventually arrived in car park. There several wind driven structures in the area.near the tearoom. At first we were left to walk round and not particularly impressed as we did not understand the exhibits. However the owner gathered us all together and gave an excellent and informative talk on each of the wind devices. She took us to each in turn and was able to make them operate which was very impressive. The tour took over an hour and was very interesting. We finished with a coffee and cake before leaving

It's not easy nowadays to see wind-engines, they are mostly in ruins and in inaccessible places. So it's a real treat for a historic windpower enthusiast like me to be able to see a collection of them, from home and abroad, with good interpretation , as well as some bits of steam engineering. Nice welcoming people on site to talk to too.

We expected to see a lot of windmills and other "yesterday" derelict engineering. What we got was a tour de force of British heritage of past wonders of engineering that deserve attention from engineers today to help solve present day demands for clean energy. " It's all been done before" is a cliche phrase for take notice and learn from the past as they knew how to make things work. A great learning experience illustrated by working examples of how to get energy out of the (thin) air. Lovely dedicated amiable volunteers engaged in making things work to demonstrate how to create power and money for nothing. If you are not interested in engineering then there are ample supplies of cake and tea to satisfy you. Wish i lived close by as i would wish to get involved.
