Lissett wind farm
The design of this small wind farm on a former RAF airfield in the East Riding of Yorkshire consists of two simple curving arrays of turbines that are aligned roughly north-south. Within each array, turbines are equally spaced. The effect of this is to create a simple, well balanced image in almost all views of the development, including those seen from greater distances. Lissett wind farm was granted planning consent in 2007 and has been operational since 2009.
During the Second World War, Lissett was the base for 158 Squadron RAF. As a reminder, Infinis erected a memorial and named the turbines after the Halifax bombers that flew from the Airfield.
