At the confluence of the Goyt and Sett rivers in Derbyshire, deep in the gorge which divides the town of New Mills,
there is a hydro-electric installation where a water-driven Archimedes' Screw drives a 47KWh  turbine. It produces
enough power to supply a nearby supermarket with its entire electricity requirement.
In the shot below, the screw device is in the cage beside the weir.

Thanks RDB. That gorge is at the start of the Sett Valley Trail. A good walking route up to High Peak and Kinder Scout. Hills that would like to be mountains

Thank you. It was a community project, and I believe it was the first of its kind in the UK.
