A Very Special Delivery

It’s here!  On Tuesday 25th March the screw was delivered from the Netherlands.  We held our breath as the 4.35m screw was lowered into place,  and at midday, the 4.35m-long, four-bladed Archimedean screw was installed.

Despite being officially on holiday, we were delighted that Steve Naylor from the Environment Agency was there on the day and captured the event on film.  Many thanks to Steve for letting us share the footage on-line.
