September 18th – One of the more curious love affairs of my life has been with Rugeley Power Station. This 1950’s temple to the power of electricity and the new technological age looked to have an uncertain future when Lea Hall pit closed, but now fed by Daw Mill Colliery in Leicester, it has been fully upgraded and now is amongst the cleanest coal-fired station in the country. I find this industrial behemoth endlessly fascinating, awe inspiring and hugely ugly. A symbol of the modern age, I never tire of taking in this view.
