This place is a great museum - your appreciation for wind power is heightened after sailing on the Broads. It is volunteer run, so please call ahead to make sure they are open, and use the postcode NR29 5JU to help you find it. If...More

Especially suitable for the area (given its proximity to the Wind Park), it was rather informative for the benefits of wind power, the impact (positive and perhaps negative) to the local community, and –basically– how wind power could be converted into electricity.
