We have the chance to purchase an incredible 70-acre plot in Yorkshire with enormous potential. It is the site of a former working watermill that we will restore to create a hydroelectric system to supply all necessary power.
The derelict buildings on the site will be repaired and used for educational purposes, as well as offering the option to serve as spaces for local tradespeople and businesses to work from.
A beautiful clear beck runs through the property and is home to a healthy variety of wildlife, including kingfishers, ducks, freshwater crayfish and otters. The land is degraded and unmanaged in large parts, meaning there is ample opportunity to improve the local biodiversity.
This is a fantastic opportunity to tie three hugely positive long term goals together: to improve the natural health of the area, to be self-reliant with green energy, and to provide free education to local schools and universities.
