    We made a visit to this large derelict powerstation today. It's well worth a visit.

    The three large cooling towers are still standing - despite the fact that several of the support legs are missing from one. Unfortunately, the walkways running round the inside have been removed, and the pits at the bottom are full of water, so you can't really see up them. The air currents make the water boil and bubble like an evil beast live down below.

    There are a few small outbuildings still standing, one was a locomotive shed, the others pretty much unidentifiable.

    The boilerhouse has been knocked down, leaving the shell of the turbine and alternator hall. All the equipment has been stripped, leaving just the huge (and innaccessible to all but the most hardcore) travelling crane. There is a sub-basement, but it is flooded almost to the ceiling, and seriously smells.

    The maintenance workshop, offices, and control room building are still attached. Nearly everything except the paperwork was removed - but there is still enough to make it interesting. Asbestos removal work has already happened - but I think it would be wise to take precautions.

    There is still a large and functional 400kV substation on the site, but it is fenced off, so no risk of stumbling into it. Men are working on it at the moment, but they aren't interested in a few explorers.
