Richborough Power Station, going going gone.

The council have decided Richborough power station is to go between March and November. 
     When it was fuelled with orimulsion people complained that it damaged the paintwork on cars parked near it, makes you wonder what breathing the fumes did to people.


  1. If they are right about global warming Luke also part of the cause of the end of an era.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Very true. I'm going to do a blog post about this tomorrow. Ultimately, my sadness about seeing the towers go and joining that Facebook group to save them was really only for sentimental reasons, given the fact that my Grandad used to work there.

    Other than that, I see no entirely legitimate reason to keep them. I remain a pragmatist about this really. Some environmental activists are even joining the campaign but their arguments just don't seem to wash in my opinion, considering the role Richborough power station played in polluting the very environment they claim to be defending. Seems like a contradiction in terms.

  4. I imagined they could paint the towers and stick some concrete flowers in the top.

    It would give me a laugh if nothing else.

  5. They could have been turned into a helter skelter- who needs Dreamland?

  6. Can't they get Hamish Fulton to walk around the top of them?


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
