Another image of a doomed power station. Due to close in 2015 is Ironbridge B power station which was commenced in 1963 and full 1000 MW capacity reached with the commissioning of the second 500 MW unit in February 1970. The cooling towers were deliberately constructed using concrete to which a red pigment had been added, to blend with the colour of the local soil. This added £11,000 to the construction costs.

Nice shot. Once the power station is closed I suppose they will demolish the cooling towers. I'm one of those few people who likes the look of them in the industrial landscape.Every year they seem to knock more of them down.

There's your opening young man. Buy them and turn them into rural retreats, home unit blocks or some such thing. I'm sure the pounds will soon be racing into your bank. :-)
