Powered down for good.


fawley power stationA closer view of the old oil-fired Fawley Power Station, on the western side of Southampton Water, it was commissioned in 1971. It was state of the art when it opened but is now closed, The decommissioning and demolition of the plant is expected to take several years, and the future of the site remains undecided. The removal of the 650 foot chimney will change the skyline on Southampton Water.

When the power station has gone I will return and add a new picture from this spot.
