2012 saw the commissioning of the first hydro powered turbine on the river Thames. The installation of the Archemedes screw turbine was completed in October 2011 and we are now producing green power. This has two benefits. Firstly, we are helping the enviornment and secondly we are ensuring the life of the listed watermill, as the income will help keep the last working watermill on the Thames alive and milling. Mapledurham - powering our way into the future.
