    Construction of Huncoat Power Station began in 1950 and it was opened in 1956. Situated on the Burnley coalfield meant that the power station had a ready supply of local coal, and until 1968 was served by a half mile railway line to Huncoat Colliery.

    The Power Station had a fairly short life, closure coming in 1984. The cooling towers were brought down in 1988 and the main buildings were demolished in 1990, apart from this one building. Not totally sure why this was left - my guess is that it contained transformers or switch gear, and was only closed when the relatively new transformer buildings (adjacent to the site) were brought on line.
