Ironbridge Power Station – Demolished

EDIT: as of August 2020, only the boiler house and chimney remain of Ironbridge B. The cooling towers, turbine hall, control room, precipitators and ducting and bunker bay have been demolished.

In October of 2019, a friend and I ventured up to Ironbridge Power Station in Shropshire to explore the cooling towers before their impeding demolition in December of 2019. Unfortunately we got to the game too late, as workers had stripped out a huge portion of the site. Security was high so we had to very carefully meandre our way around the site, eventually arriving at the cooling towers. They were GIGANTIC. And inside, when looking up, I got the sense of being at the bottom of a huge toilet roll tube. Here are the photographs.

N.B: the cooling towers were demolished in December 2019.
