aerial photograph of Rugeley Power Station taken on its last day of operation. Originally one of two power stations on the site, Rugeley A (600 Megawatts) and Rugeley B (1000 Megawatts) . Rugeley A was opened in 1961 with Rugeley B following in 1970. Originally coal was supplied along a conveyor from the nearby Lea Hall Colliery but after the closure of the Colliery in 1991 the coal was delivered by rail. Rugeley A was closed and demolished in 1995 and now Rugeley B was closed with generation being switched off on the day this photograph was taken. The Power station is now to be demolished.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
