Ratcliffe power station a few hours ago. This is the coal-fired power station (not nuclear, as many assume) that looms over East Midlands Parkway station. The plant and admin block were completed in 1968 in the Brutalist style. The cooling towers can be seen from miles around, creating a dystopian scene which has attracted numerous environmental protests (and bothered many Download attendees trying to come down) over the years. I quite like it though.
