Daresbury Tower
Daresbury Tower
Before being decommissioned in 1993 Daresbury Tower was the largest Van De Graff generator on the planet. When built in the 1970s, there was great opposition by locals. Now, however it is a landmark and civilian airline pilots use it as a navigation aid. Currently part of the Daresbury Science and Innovation Centre it is being used for research into the "fourth generation light source".
