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’!:)

I know this one has been 'done' and 'done over' so many times but whilst I was in the area from another explore, I decided to pay it a call for the first time.:p:

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.:thumb

Pre-apology guys and gals for the number of pics!!!!
