Central Power Station - UK

Sometimes working a Sunday has its advantages such as no demolition crew right next to your entry point

It took longer to get in than it did to explore the place but the control room made for a welcome site to work for a little while

Built in 1918 to supply energy to Lever's Port Sunlight factories. The station could produce a total of 11.5 Megawatts of electrical power at 3.3kv. By the 1950s Central Power Station was producing power for the various Lever’s factories around Port Sunlight and Bromborough, both of the Villages and for other companies operating in the Bromborough Pool area. It had a connection to the main MANWEB electricity supply so that in periods of high demand it imported power from MANWEB, and at times of low demand it exported power to MANWEB.

Nice find! Lots of history there, I'd wager!
