The turbine is 100 meters tall so needs to be transported to the RSPB on eight lorries. It could take about two weeks to put up, depending on the weather.

The turbine is expected to generate about two million units of green energy each year, which the charity says is equivalent to half the electricity it uses across all of its 27 locations in the UK.

"In the UK we have the potential to generate a significant portion, if not all of our electricity from sustainable sources. This will take time and it will take investment.

"So I am proud to say the RSPB continues to back words with actions to show we are serious about tackling the threat of climate change with our biggest single renewable energy project yet."

– Martin Harper - Director of Conservation, RSPB

Others in Norwich and Colchester are being taken down too. The site at Tayfen Road became a gas works in 1834. Gas was initially produced by heating coal in a container before being transferred to gas holders.

Appliances powered by gas became more and more popular over the years and in 1952 a gas holder was built on site to meet increasing demand.
