Torrs Hydro (www.torrshydro.org) is a community-owned hydro-electric plant. Clean, green energy is generated by river water flowing through our reverse Archimedes screw “Archie” and sold to the local Co-op supermarket. The project is owned by 230 shareholders.

Location: Torrs Riverside Park, New Mills, Derbyshire, SK22
Directions: There is a path down into the Torrs Riverside Park from New Mills Bus Station and another from New Mills Central train station. New Mills Newtown train station is a short walk away.
