Ironbridge B Power Station reflected in the River Severn
Ironbridge B Power Station reflected in the River Severn
One of the two power stations at Ironbridge, this is the last of the two and this was built from 1963 to 1967, which electricity was generated here in the latter year. The power station started to give power to the National Grid in 11th June 1969, and this lasted until 20th November 2015. This was built by Alan Clark and Kenneth Booth, which the two built these structures very carefully so that these could not be seen from the famous Iron Bridge. The cooling towers were built out of concrete, with a red pigment added so that this could blend in with the surrounding soil. The entire power station will be demolished from 2019 to 2021, meaning one section of Ironbridge's modern industrial history is lost. The River Severn is seen underneath the power station, which flows through the town of Ironbridge.
