Cumbria's biggest hydro-electric scheme is nearing completion.
The construction work stretches for almost a mile and a half across a fell near Ambleside.
When complete it will provide the equivalent of half the power needed by the village.
And the project has been a rather unusual backer.
Cumbria's biggest hydro-electric scheme is nearing completion. The construction work stretches for almost a mile and a half across a mountainside just outside Ambleside.
When complete it will provide the equivalent of half the power needed by the village, around 1400 homes.
The force of the water flowing down Scandale Beck is being harnessed and will be turned into hydro-electric power when the £2.8 million project is opened next month. The company building the scheme, Ellergreen Hydro, has a rather unusual partner. A third of the money has come from the Carlisle Diocese of the Church of England.
Martin Jayne, the Chairman of the Carlisle Diocesan Finance Board, says:
We're putting this money into green energy because we do have a policy whereby we want to be the greenest diocese we can be and we're carbon neutral I think is the phrase, the first diocese to be there."
Ellergreen Hydro is involved with more than 15 similar schemes around the Lake District. It says hydro electric power is becoming more and more popular in Cumbria and this scheme will also allow people to choose directly to make use of it.
Mark Cropper, the Managing Director, says:
It's going to be the very first where we're going to be able to actually offer people the ability to buy electricity directly from this scheme and that is pioneering and it's something we're working on right now."
At the moment the construction work has left a very obvious scar on the landscape, but the company says in 18 months it will be impossible to see that any work has taken place here.
Volunteers from Coniston Mountain Rescue team have been called out to 44 incidents this year - more than in the whole of 2014.
They say it could be down to people relying too much on their mobile phones, and not taking maps with them.

RAF Sea King helicopters are being replaced by new coastguard aircraft after 35 years of service.
Richard Warren, Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team said:
The month of August has also been a historic month for one of our mountain rescue teams on the west coast. Wasdale MRT was called out to a rescue on Scafell Pike on the 17th August where a lady had broken her ankle. Due to a hazardous stretcher carry back down the mountain, the team leader called in helicopter support and was extremely surprised and pleased when he was advised that a Sikorsky S92 from Humberside was being scrambled to their location. This much larger and heavier, more powerful and greater capacity helicopter has a very distinctive engine sound that Cumbrians will soon become used to and teams will become experienced in the fierce downwash which blows you off your feet if you are not secure. This rescue was the very first occasion where the new Bristow helicopter had flown into Cumbria on an operational mission, a truly historic event for the teams.
RAF Sea King helicopters will train with Cumbria's mountain rescue teams for the final time today.
The Sea King's are being decommissioned after 35 years of service and will be replaced by new coastguard helicopters.
The yellow aircraft, which have been a welcome sight for the 12 mountain rescue teams, will be replaced by new red and white liveried coastguard helicopters under a 10-year multi-million pound contract.
Lake District mountain rescue teams handled 474 incidents during 2014, of which there were 11 fatalities. The majority of rescues are managed without helicopter support. The teams are all charities and volunteers are unpaid. It costs around £500,000 a year to run the 12 teams which is funded through voluntary donations.
