Iconic Towers to Tumble

Iconic Towers to Tumble

The Ironbridge Power Stations pink cooling towers are set to be demolished next year, dashing the hopes of many residents to keep one as a relic of the age.

The rest of the site is set to be flattened too.

Meanwhile, here are some super pics that many will not have seen before of the inner workings of the place.

    I suppose it’s going to be turned into another faceless development.

    I’ve been living in Telford now for a year and me and my wife love seeing the towers, such a focal point in the sky line, such a shame for them to go. Won’t be the same not seeing them. ☹️

    While they’re at it, why don’t they scrap that rusty bit of iron across the Gorge and replace it with something more suitable for the 21st century traffic?

    As a frequent visitor to Ironbridge, I think it’s a shame a focal point of character is being destroyed. Does anyone have a date for the planned demolition?

    Weird, stick them in someone’s backyard there is uproar, put them down the road from a World heritage site, not a problem. Blow em up I say!
