The towers taken from Richborough Castle (Roman)
This morning at 9am the Cooling Towers and chimney at Richborough Power Station were blown up to make way for a new Green Energy Plant. I decided I wouldn’t go along as I feel quite sad to see them go, they have been a landmark in this area for the whole of my life. I did however think you might like to see some now historic photos, taken in 2008 and last week, just to show how the towers fitted into the landscape around here. For me the towers will be missed, it would be nice if whatever is built on the site becomes a landmark in its own right, only time will tell, but it will never be the same driving to Ramsgate again…

I love this one, the (very) old and the new, so pleased I got this photo when I did!
