Where the Wind Farms are

It's easy to get mixed up between wind farms, what with them springing up like huge marine mushrooms around the coast of Kent. So here's a map. The Kentish Flats wind farm is an array of 30 turbines arranged in a 5x6 diamond, about 5 miles north of Herne Bay. The London Array, about 30 miles north-east of Herne Bay and occasionally visible, is under construction - 50 turbines up and running when I last looked. This will be the world's largest wind farm when completed, unless someone beats to them to the finishing line presumably. The Thanet Offshore Windfarm off Broadstairs is apparently nearing completion.
