There are 3 Cooling Towers This Morning

July 27, 2014

The 3 southern cooling towers of Didcot ‘A’ Power Station got blown down at 5am this morning. The other 3 will get taken down more slowly. Here are views during and after the demolition. The same views were shown on yesterday’s blog before the event.

    We watched across the field in Sutton Rd, Milton. It was surreal all that waiting for 10 seconds – but worth it. My photos are on my blog.

    We were going to watch this, but my bed wouldn’t let me get up :-)

    I was woken at 04:45, to watch it online at 05:00. In Botley at the time….

    Visitors could have watched this from the top of the County Hall, but they declared there weren’t any available staff to supervise. However one staff member let themselves into the museum with partner and spent the evening on the roof wining, dining and watching.

    Seems ok for their own gain.
