Veolia grass up top

Veolia Energy Recovery Centre

Yes, look again - here we have a "living roof", with a stretch composed of grass, mosses and flowers. This growth is all deliberate too, as the construction here is claimed to be the most environmentally-friendly (man-made) in the county: described as a "breathing building".

Actually, this is the county's major recycling centre - where all sorts of processes derive energy from waste. Veolia, the owners, are very proud of it and say more developments are to come.

  1. Unusual on a modern building, but fitting with its purpose.
