Explored with NickUK and Sho.

Lostock Power Station is a decommissioned Coal fired power station built in the early 1950′s. It was decommissioned in 2000 due to the opening of e.on’s Combined Heat & Power station in nearby Winnington. The derelict station lies fenced off on the site of the Brunner Mond Soda Ash works, which is still a live site.

We jumped the fence into the live soda ash works, and without hesitation darted into cover and made our way towards the looming power station. We got as close as we could before we had to make a dash across no man’s land and jump the fence into the grounds of the station. Quickly making our way in to avoid being clocked, we found ourselves stood in a massive room surrounded by pipes and machinery, with the smell of abandonment, and clouds of vapour emerging from holes in the floor.


The place is in reasonable condition, and makes for a good explore, despite it being relatively small. The main hall still has a turbine sat in place, and various bits of machinery and control panels and valves can be seen pretty much everywhere you look.








Water vapour?


Pure industrial goodness. Thanks for looking​
