    Visited with... where there's a WILL there's a way KNOT :D

    Thanks for driving Will, The site was interesting for me as I've never been to an incinerator before and as We were in the area it was a must, the basement was flooded up to 4 ft and not having any chestie waders to hand it was a no no.

    The rest of the buildings doable, I didn't fancy a climb up the chimneys.. I don't do heights and there's a working farm next door, the last thing cows and sheep want to see is my fat a**e ten stories high :eek:


    A bit of history..

    The future use of the former Worcestershire County Council waste incinerator near Malvern is un-sure. The incinerator has been disused for many years and was bought at auction by a private buyer. No decision has yet been taken on what plans will go forward but one of the leading options is for a “low-impact eco-communityâ€￾ where people grow their own food and live and work on site.

    It was down to a planning appeal that ultimately decided whether a disused waste incinerator was to be switched back on. When the site was sold by Worcestershire County Council back in 2007 there were no covenants placed on its future use. The legal use of the site remains as an incinerator and there are no planning reasons that would prevent that being the case. Several operators are interested in restoring the incinerator as a more “bespokeâ€￾ facility, dealing with specialist materials including waste from vets and medical facilities.

    At the moment something in the region of 73,000 tonnes of specialist waste originates in Worcestershire, but only about 8,000 tonnes is actually treated in the county, so a small plant which would treat about 30,000 tonnes a year would clearly find a use.

    Although the site could theoretically be brought back into use again as an incinerator, this is not the preferred option by a long way. The problem is that no matter how desirable, neither the removal of the unsightly 10-storey high structure nor the remediation of the contamination left there by years of use will happen on its own.
