    This weekend myself, Bigjobs and FB decided to take a trip north of the border and visit Scotland. Whilst we were there we paid a visit to Cockenzie power station.

    Although I have visited Battersea on a couple of occasions I have only really seen Control Room A, the White Room and had a mooch on the roof, so this was new to me and I didn't really know what to expect. Demolition is well underway, the turbines have already been removed and there is lots of empty space. However, whilst not as impressive as Battersea from the outside, this didn't stop me being impressed once I was inside. Just seeing the size of the place and trying to imagine what it would have looked liked before they started to demolish it.

    Oh and not to forget, I'd like to give a big thanks to Bigjobs and FB for letting me tag along and providing me some
    much needed leg ups!

    Nice pictures. Mine are absolute bilge - was feeling a bit dejected after discovering how knackered it was, although I wasn't really sure why I was expecting anything different.
