Lily Constantine takes up the story: We all boarded coaches on our visit to Norfolk: our destination, The Green Britain Centre, Swaffham. This is the home of Europe’s largest wind turbine which you are allowed to climb. Wow! What an incredible feat of engineering, although we were all trembling in fear of heights! But by the time we got to the top the view was absolutely breathtakingly worth it. In total we climbed 67 meters (300 steps!); while we were climbing we found out that the person who designed it was Sir Norman Foster, who was the architect of the Gherkin and the Wembley stadium in London. After our descent we were lucky enough to view the world’s first wind powered vehicle. The whole day was a perfect mix of excitement and information, and we all learnt a lot more about how to enhance the power of wind.
