What a difference a week makes !

Well seven days on since we have been able to start running overnight again and all is going well.

Archie has been running 24x7 for the last week running consistently at 40+kWh with a high of 53kWh.

The daily trips into the river continue (sometimes twice daily) and you will notice some works going on down at the screw over the coming weeks to strengthen the sluice gate as the original design is not strong enough.

Good new too from the work Torrs Hydro have been doing with the Environment Agency - we are now working with some local company's to design and install some information boards down at the Hydro to give more details to our thousands of visitors as part of this work there will be plating along the riverside park (working closely with Steve Lewis who is New Mills Town Councils parks and gardens Manager) - the planting will be of typical riverside species so please don't expect formal rose gardens or rows of geraniums !

This work is at the early stages and further updates will be posted on this blog
