On an extremely fine April day, the Energy Cafe was towed into the woods at Powerstock Common, West Dorset by Karl Edwards' majestic heavy horses. It was an event to publicise the campaign to open the old Maiden Newton to Bridport railway track as a Sustrans trail. The cafe as you will discover when you watch this video is designed to work off-grid as it needs no mains electricity or even bottled gas to operate. Food is sourced and foraged from within a 6 mile radius of the location of the cafe. It was designed as a collective effort at a gathering at Gunpowder Park in the Lee Valley in Essex but is now being further developed as a demonstration project by Amy Plant and Ella Gibbs. This Transition Vision video is the second featuring the Maiden Newton to Bridport trailway initiative: the first being a performance of Phil Minton's Feral Choir. Shot and edited by John and Sue Holman.
