    History
    Bowman Thompson & Company originally owned the site but was sold in 1900 to Brunner Mond whom with a seven year closure reconstructed the site producing sixty tonnes of soda ash a day. This figure rose to 800 tonnes a day in 1926 with all of the Brunner Mond assets being turned over to ICI.
    Lostock a coal fired powerstation was decommissioned in 2000 when E.ON built there new Combined Heat & Power plant at Winnington, Lostock is due to be flattened for a new Sustainable Energy Plant to be built on the site.

    After no sleep, me and 3 other none members got up and drove down to Lostock, got there quite early (3:45am) didn't hang about, got straight to an access point and got in (side-note, climbing up walls after no sleep isn't the best idea!) spent a good couple hours in here n got loads of footage.. Enjoy.. (Photo's aren't that good but deal with it :))
