Are you looking for a special day out in Kent? Don't miss the opportunity to spend an exhilarating day in the British wilderness! Wildwood is a unique woodland discovery park. It occupies 40 acres of ancient woodland, with easy access and lots to do and explore. From owls to otters, bees to beavers, and wild boar to wolves, experience close encounters with native wildlife in an environment that is close to nature. The life of Wildwood constantly changes with the seasons, as our animals give birth a whole host of young animals can be spotted, so every visit is a new experience. Travel back to Saxon times to meet the local residents and find out how man and nature got along. Catch a live demonstration of their ancient crafts and skills from the UK's leading re-enactment society, Regia Anglorum http://www.regia.org/ Discover animals that you never knew once ran free right here, as well as other rare and threatened native species from the present. Behind the scenes Wildwood takes part in conservation programmes of many native species, such as the water vole, the hazel dormouse, the sand lizard and the European beaver. So you can help save some of the most threatened native animals by supporting Wildwood with your visit. Only in Wildwood will you find a whole world of British wildlife past and present to explore. We offer regular special events, daily talks and feeding programmes around the park, interactive sessions tailored to your groups needs, and extensive supporting education materials for schools.

Wind Farm


Herne Bay, Kent

Multimap Map and Directions >>

 

The Kentish Flats wind farm, off of Herne Bay is a key element of the British Government's commitment to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide seeking to reverse the trends of climate change.
The wind farm comprises 30 efficient wind turbines capable of producing up to 3 MW of electricity each, so that the total output of the wind farm could be up to 90 MW.
The offshore wind farm has set a dual record: the 30 turbine project was the largest wind turbine so far installed in the UK, and the farm was the largest wind farm in the UK, at 90 MW rated capacity, at the erection time.
The wind farm is arranged in a regular grid of five east-west rows each of six turbines, sited in an area of 10 km2. The spacing between each turbine and rows of turbines will be 700 metres.

 

Facilities:

Trips to the wind farm are available with Bayblast.
