Didcot A Power Station’s Towers Demolished

For a long time, anyone walking along the Ridgeway between Oxfordshire and Berkshire will have used the cooling towers from the Didcot Power Station as a clear landmark.  The first three of these from Didcot A’s coal guzzler were demolished Sunday.  There is lots of media coverage, so no need for me to waffle on, so here are some links to help you learn more:
