10. Ford End Watermill, Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire

  • Built primarily with sustainable, recyclable, and compostable materials (timber)
  • Zero carbon emissions from its process.
  • Long service life (at least 1787 to 1963)
  • Now a museum

Why choose it? Because it demonstrates why we now have to think hard about green issues. In years past, our technology was much greener. Now we are trying to reduce the environmental impact of our inherently non-green modern technologies. Should we be learning from the past more?
