High Marnham Power Station, Lincolnshire – 24 2 09:

Day Three of our week on holiday, we visit what is left of High Marnham Power Station, see a rather cool report here, alright it would have been something to add to the stories we tell our grand children, but here we are in these giants and it was for us better than Thorpe Marsh that is more post society, here they stood in silence on their own and if you love cooling towers, dislike men in yellow coats and up for easy access then this has to be done. now if you like it all a little bit more urban industrial then we guess a no go, bucolic with an edge then your in..

High Marnham Power Station is a former coal-fired power station, currently undergoing demolition. It is located in Nottinghamshire, to the west of the River Trent, just south of the village of Dunham. It was the most southerly of three power stations which lined the River Trent, the others being West Burton and Cottam. The station was opened in 1959 and had a generating capacity on 945 megawatts (MW).

The station closed in 2003 after nearly 45 years in operation, with a loss of 119 jobs. The station’s chimneys were demolished on 15 December 2004.[3] The station’s 150 feet (46 m) high boiler house was demolished on 5 October 2006.[4] The station’s five cooling towers still stand.

We did however find what seems to be an old Station in the grounds, old platform, paths and the houses looked like old rail houses, was there a station there in 1959?
