As part of the Derbyshire Open Arts exhibition Torrs Hydro are playing host to a local artist who will be displaying two pieces created from 'found objects' dragged out of the river by the intake to the Hydro.
With some good rain earlier in the week Archie is expected to be spinning this Bank Holiday weekend and with 'torrential rain expected late Monday/early Tuesday he should be near to maximum output by the middle of next week.
Below are Ann Harding and Chris l'Anson from Settle who hope to soon be starting the build of their own Archie some time early summer -- we wish them good luck and look forward to providing them with advice and guidance throughout.

Well those walking through the Torrs this weekend will have noticed that Archie has been very still - lack of rain during the week and Saturday has meant not enough water to start producing electricity.
The forecast for Sunday afternoon and the start of next week is good from Archie's point of view (so don't forget your brolly) so we will try and start up at 6:00pm this evening - water permitting !

The book has gained rave reviews (The Guardian, The Economist etc) and it can be accessed for free too; I have downloaded a copy and am very impressed.
