Farmland and Drakelow Power Station, near Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire
Midday view across farmland and woodland towards Drakelow Power Station (formerly C Station). The power station closed in March 2003 and was being gradually demolished for re-development. The day after the image was taken, its two chimneys were demolished in darkness, just after 6 am. The pylon is just on the southern edge of the grid square at SK225190, whereas the chimney and the two nearest cooling towers are on its eastern edge.
