    Arrow Willington Cooling Towers, January 2014


    We stopped off here on the way back from the DRI. I have seen them many times from a distance but this was he first time I had seen them close up. They were a lot bigger than I thought.

    There are five towers in total and they are all that remains from both Willington A & Willington B Power stations which closed in 1995 & 1999 respectively.

    Only a few pics from here as we didn't stay too long.

    Agreed... it's excellent!

    That 17-40mm lens looks good.
