Sadly half the local muppets were staring closely at Kingsnorth Power Station,  whilst they demolished the Isle of Grain power station ,,  stupid is as stupid does :)

We noticed that and (sorry to admit) had a little chuckle at their expense, on the way to the traffic jam at Riverside Country Park.

Should have gone to Raspberry Hill Lane between Lower Halstow and Iwade (and joined the Environment Agency staff sifting through the fly tipped rubbish)!

I have done relay testing at both of those power stations, the chimney is no longer used as they use the shorter ones nowadays, Grain was rarely powered up, and when I was there one of the generating units was sold to india, Grain is the backup for Kingsnorth, when a unit is offline at kingsnorth, grain was the backup unit, ear protection is only worn there when one of the units actually fires up.
