    - A recent 'family' day out.....whilst leaving the women shopping.....took 'Little Will Knot' on his first explore with me and went for a look around the above......

    Did you know URBAN EXPLORERS armed with spray paint cans have transformed the former Huncoat Power Station into a graffiti paradise? Some of their work has been described by experts as ‘strong’ and ‘creative’! The decor has certainly changed since I was last in there!!!

    A Bit of History

    - Construction started on Huncoat Power Station in 1950 and it was finally 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 half mile railway line to Huncoat Colliery. The Power Station had a fairly short life and closed in 1984. The cooling towers were brought down in 1988 and the main buildings were demolished in 1990 leaving just this one building behind.

    On with the pics.............
