The End Is Nigh At Oldbury Power Station, Gloucestershire.

Ah, back from the wild and wonderful Crete. Arrived back in the UK at some ungodly hour Saturday morning. I'm always glad to go and always glad to return which always kind of answers the question of whether I would like to live there full time. It is always a magical place that I love to return to I fear that living there would spoil that....perhaps I'm greedy but I enjoy having my cake and eating it!
Easter is such a beautiful time there, it always feels like Christmas and New Year all rolled into one but with more pleasant weather. Easter was pretty early this year for Greece so it was a tad on the chilly side during week one but wall to wall sunshine for week two...I have nothing to complain about. There seems to be something going on pretty much every day of Easter week, I'm not a religious person but I am moved by the sense of community brought about by everyone being as one. I know it is a largely Orthodox country but oddly I never see them as religious just lots of tradition...which I guess is similar.

Today's photo is from a little trip we had a few days prior to going away to Oldbury Nuclear Power Station. Situated on the banks of the River Severn. A lovely mix of rural and industrial....right up my street. This nuclear power station is due to cease production in December 2008. Curious where it is? Well here's a little map to help you on your way.
