fawley power station


As I switched on the kettle this morning I didn’t give a moments thought as to where the elcetric came from. But seeing power atations up close gives you pause for thought. We were up a lane near Rugeley when this veiw of the power station came up across the field of rapeseed, of course in the bright sunshine it would have been better. 

The oil fired station at Fawley nr Calshot dominates the skyling with it’s giant chimney, it has a circular control room that looks like something from Space 1999 (a Sci Fi series) . It always seems deserted , they store little boats on the site as the Solent is right next to it.
