At 9 AM on Sunday 11th March fifty years of Kent history ended in less than fifty seconds when the three cooling towers and chimney of Richborough Power Station were demolished by a series of controlled explosions.
Finally the chimney came down.
All that remains now is a solitary wind turbine and two masts.
As I mentioned in my earlier post about Richborough Power Station the plan is to convert the site into a 300 acre "green energy park".
Personally I think covering the countryside with solar panels and/or wind turbines will be as big an eye sore as the towers which have just come down....
