SK5029 : Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station - the coal storage area

taken 9 years ago, near to Thrumpton, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station - the coal storage area
Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station - the coal storage area
At this stage of the year the coal stocks have been considerably reduced, giving views of the coal handling area that are not normally available. Normally only the tops of the tallest buildings (and of course the chimneys) would be visible above the mounds of coal. The various conveyor bridges in the left half of the picture both distribute coal from incoming trains into the storage area and feed it back from storage into the boiler house. The plant further to the right including the buildings with gable roofs are the desulphurisation plant.
