    Willington is an absolute must if you're anywhere nearby. True, there's not that much to see but the size and scale of the towers just has to be seen (up close) to be believed.

    Been out there a couple of times now meself and seen it in both wet and dry conditions. Still never sorted through all my pics of it but I have most of them up here. No hijack intended! :D

    They've knocked out the structures underneath the two eldest towers (ones closest to Twyford Road) - this can be seen in Goldie's second picture.
