RES (Renewable Energy Systems) is a specialist company involved in the planning of wind energy farms, together with other forms of renewable energy.
The wind turbine visible from the M25 in Hertfordshire is on their site.
After lunch at The Paper Mill, a Fullers pub, we will visit the Paper Trail, which illustrates the history of paper making in the Gade Valley, under the Victorian entrepreneur John Dickinson.
The museum contains the first Fourdrinier production machine still in working order, and dating from 1895.
By train: To Kings Langley on the London Midland from Euston. The 10:05 from Euston arrives at 10:30.
The return will be from Apsley, the next station down the line. Turn right on leaving Kings Langley station and then turn right again after 250m into Egg Farm Lane and RES.
For transport to lunch and between the two sites car drivers will be requested to take passengers.
By car: Leave M25 at Junction 20. Take the A4251 exit from the roundabout below the motorway, and after 500m turn right at the next roundabout. After 400m, at the tee junction, turn left, and, within 250m, take the first right, Egg Farm Lane. This leads directly into RES.
