The first pics I have seen of the wind-farm bases from Viking Bay. Saw them with naked eye-ball just over a week ago. With the main trunk and sails fitted and all in glorious brilliant white, these are going to make a huge visual impact on the sea scape viewed from Broadstairs.

I have seen in the past, drain covers in Thanet with TV Bond written on them. I wonder how old they are
