I went for a little look round these the other day. Nothing else remains, just the five cooling towers.

The three structures provided for the “B” station were set at right-angles to the north of the pair for the “A” Station. The towers are 300 feet high and have 145’ diameter at their tops, 122’ at their “throat” and 218’ at the base. Each tower had an effective cooling surface of 858,000 square feet.

This sign was a bit worrying - it was just in front of a rusty hatch down into the ground. I didn't open it.
