Didcot Power Station

I remember them building the place back during  1960's I remember the huge pylons being built near my village and then heading off in the direction of Reading. around 1971 I had tour round the place and at one stage I even went for a job there but never got past the first interview. During the 1970s the place was besieged by Miners during the coal strike but was still supplied by a constant stream of lorries I remember going along the A34  This photo was taken from Great Western Park which is a new housing estate nearby.

Didcot Power Station is due to close in 2013.
