Eggborough cooling towers demolished

Four huge cooling towers have been demolished at the former Eggborough power station. The 300ft high structures in North Yorkshire were brought down just after 8am on Sunday. The coal-fired power station was decommissioned in 2018 and four of its eight towers, each containing around 11,000 tonnes of reinforced concrete, were demolished as part of a plan to redevelop the site. The site was acquired by the St Francis Group in 2019 which is planning an industrial and distribution park on the site once the rest of the station is demolished.
