If it was the IoW company it would have been Vestas.
The company is MHI Vestas Offshore Wind Aarhus.

Yes, that is the company who make them, but it was not their name on the blades.
The site they occupy was where the hovercrafts were made....it has a huge Union Flag painted on the wall.

Aarhus is Jutland Denmark, and not "in the middle of our street".

No, this is the first time I have seen that.
I have been looking for the picture I took, but I think it might have been on a hard drive that fried its brain(Mick did his best to rescue what was on it but to no avail).
Anyway, I can't find the shot I was looking for.

Re: Today in pictures

The Tentering Tower or The Wet Tower at Stubbins near Ramsbottom (a Grade II listed building) was a cloth store used by the nearby Porritt's Mill, originally a single storey building, a second storey with battlements on 3 sides was added later. Cloth from the mill would be hung on long tenter-frames in the field to the rear of it. Nearby there is a small quarry, now used as an allotment, that I assume was used for the building material of the tower.

1/ and 2/ Exterior of the Tentering Tower
3/ The Roof Line of the second storey
4/ Post Holes for beams for the second storey floor, also cast iron guttering near the top.
5/ and 6/ At some point the ground floor was converted to a stable, so I'm assuming that these metal objects hammered into the wall were part of the stable fittings
7/ Exterior showing ground floor arched entrance and stairs to the second storey.
8/ On the path to the tower were the remains of a cobbled path with a central gulley.

Woollen cloth was attached to the tenter frame by tenterhooks at the selvage ("self-finished" edge of fabric) whilst it was drying to prevent it from becoming misshapen; which is were the phrase 'being on tenterhooks comes from'.
