    Willington Power Station Derbyshire, site visited with oldskool,kitty hidden shadow and bugsuperstar. To be fair you cant really call it a power station anymore it's just five cooling towers so it was more of a photo opportunity than a explore. still it was a nice way to end a long day and take the time to try and capture what's left of what once a rather large site. it's still very impressive and a nice subject matter to shoot.
    A little history.
    Willington power station was in fact two independent generating stations situated on the same site, construction began in 1954 with site A. Site A station comprised of four generating unit's each of 100 megawatts of capacity, to service these there were two 425ft chimneys along with two cooling towers.Site B as to comprise of only two units of 200 megawatts capacity with only one 425ft chimney and three cooling towers, each tower is 300ft high and 145ft in diameter and 218ft at the base.The station began to close in stages from 1993 and finally closed in 1999..worth a look if you passing
