    Ok a bit of history of the place,wont put too much as its been done on here already.

    The below info is taken off the net and as such i have no rights to any of the material and also accept no responsibility for any inaccuracies


    Willington power station cooling towers


    In the 1950s, two coal-fired power stations were built on a site off Twyford Road, between Willington and Findern. The stations were privatised and sold to National Power in the early 1990s and eventually closed in the mid 1990s. Although most of the stations were demolished at the turn of the millennium, the five cooling towers continue to dominate the skyline of the local area.

    In the mid 1990s a pair of peregrine falcons nested in one of the site's huge cooling towers. Unlike many bird of prey breeding sites, this was widely publicised because of its impregnable location:cool

    On with my pics.....
