    So with my car off the road for now and desperation for possibly the last explore of 2013, I did a call around and finally found someone to drive us. Ben picked me up at 8:30am and we went to pick up other Ben at about 9. Destination: a college in the midlands.

    We decided to go further North to Willington and work our way back down. I was fighting back my fever and Lemsipped up for the day, with my new GoPro and vehicle mount.

    We arrived at the Willington Towers at about half ten. The towers have laid abandoned since the closure of Willington Power Station in 1995; its demolition in 2002 left 5 large cooling towers.

    The station opened in 1959 and served the area for 45 years. Permission has been granted to develop the site for another Power Station.

    It was a lovely, crisp, clear December morning.
