Wadbury Mill is a pre planning permission site.  Wadbury Mill, or Mells Lower Works, was originally a factory that made billhooks, scythes and other iron edged tools.  Built on the site of an earlier factory before the Industrial Revolution in the middle of the 18th Century, the factory fell into dereliction in the early part of the last century and the fire there in the 1990’s accelerated the slide in to the sites current state - perhaps best described as rustic.  Wadbury Mill site is home to rare horseshoe bats, located in a bat roost in the woods and the factory is a scheduled ancient monument - the same planning status as Stonehenge.  The residential portion is listed at grade 2.

 
The energy generation potential is such that, should the turbine be permissioned, the village of Mells will be largely emission free when the turbine is at peak energy production.
