Wakefield Hydroelectrical power


4 miles east of Wakefield City centre in West Yorkshire, England.

The plant was opened in 2017 and expects to be generating electricity for 100 years. Kirkthorpe Weir is the highest industrial weir in Yorkshire and has prevented fish passing upstream to spawn; the new hydro project has a fish pass built into it.

Take a look at my video here:
