Ever wondered what’s inside the Ironbridge Power Station cooling towers?

Stuart Lea Davies took his drone up over the site to give everyone a glimpse into the huge pink cavernous towers which have been a part of the landscape since being built in the 1960s.

The cooling towers used to emit steam as water used in the power generation process cooled down before being returned to the River Severn nearby.

    I went inside them when I was a kid. There was an open day for employees and relatives and my grandad worked there. They felt really big on the inside.

      Clean up in progress, so whoever holds the purse strings could consider using one of the Cooling Towers for extreme sports, run a steam railway and traction engines through the site using the 4 gage railway lines. Shropshire could have its own unique Heritage Site and provide a gallery noting the history of the area which mentions the specialist work force who helped built these iconic towers. This could be something very special if thought out. Contact those who want to preserve history, the wealthy even Mr Virgin himself and his fellow comrades, hey, if anyone is out there is listening. If the Government want to make Britain proud surely this is an ideal opportunity!
