'"Look there, Sancho Panza, see those thirty or so wild giants." "What giants?" Asked Sancho Panza. "The ones you can see over there," answered his master, "with the huge arms, some of which are very nearly two leagues long." "Now look, your grace," said Sancho, "what you see over there aren't giants, but windmills, and what seems to be arms are just their sails, that go around in the wind and turn the millstone." "Obviously," replied Don Quijote, "you don't know much about adventure".' Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
Just as Don Quijote marvelled at his dragons, we too marvel at the technology and the engineering of the wind turbine technology, but also try and recall how our seascape looked before they were built. The wind turbines are in The Mersey Channel off the coast of Crosby.
