Richborough Power Station Demolished

On the morning of the 11th March 2012 my family and I decided to walk along the cliffs at Pegwell Bay to watch the demolition of Richborough Power Station with friends and found a suitable spot amongst the bushes looking across the Bay.

The demolition at 9am, which took 18 months to plan, was over in less than a minute on Sunday after experts set off sequenced explosions at the base of the 300ft (100m) towers.
Richborough power station, near Sandwich, was opened in 1962 to generate energy from local coalfields.
