It is a view which may have been witnessed by Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, who flew into Wells on a helicopter last Tuesday to learn more about Sheringham Shoal and the offshore energy industry as a whole.

Almost all of the 88 turbines have been constructed between 10 and 15 miles off the north Norfolk coast.

About half are already producing electricity and the rest are due to go live by the end of September.

Scira, the company behind the project, has been working from Wells Field Study temporarily and work has started on constructing a permanent operation base for the wind farm at Egmere, four miles south of Wells.
