This photograph was taken near Swansholme, Felmersham. It shows in the distance a 500kW wind turbine installed at Souldrop with St Peter's Church Sharnbrook in the middle distance. The wind turbine is 50 metres to the hub and 77 metres to the blade tip.

 
 

 
 

This photograph was taken at the beginning of August immediately after the field was harvested. The tractor is pulling a cultivator which covers a wider area than a plough and is faster. Early cultivation allows the farmer to sow in the autumn which produces a higher yield than spring sown crops.
