A few shots from what was to be my last visit to Thorpe Marsh Power Station. I quite liked this site, there wasn’t a lot to see other than the cooling towers but they were more than enough of a draw to keep me coming back for more photos. This trip was my first ride out with my shiny new Canon 7D after it was replaced by my insurance company following a run in with the sea :). As you can see from the shot above the towers were just in the process of being demolished. I later confirmed my initial thoughts that these cables were a new type of demolition tactic the contractors were trialling on the cooling towers at thorpe marsh. In hind sight it was probably a bit on the dangerous side being inside them at this point especially since they were already missing supports before the holes were torn into the side of them with these cables! More history and some older photos in my first post here: http://www.proj3ctm4yh3m.com/urbex/2013/01/22/urbex-thorpe-marsh-power-station-doncaster-south-yorkshire-june-2009/
Wide view of the remaining cooling towers on approach to the site.
A view looking up at one of the cooling towers this one had one of the large metal cables running between 2 holes right through the centre. They weren’t there last time and It looks like someone was foolishly trying to demolish it this way…
