The wind turbine at Swaffham s Green Britain Centre, the only one in the world with a viewing platform the public can access, has so far produced enough green electricity to brew more than two billion cups of tea.

The 67-metre high turbine has had more than 150,000 visitors climb the steps to its viewing platform, which was designed by Sir Norman Foster, since it was installed by Ecotricity in August, 1999.

As can be seen in our picture, the platform offers 360-degree views of the surrounding Norfolk countryside, as well as a bird s eye view of Swaffham.

The turbine, with its 1.5 megawatt capacity, has produced more than 43 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
