My daughter and I got up at 2.15am for the scheduled demolition of the three cooling towers of Didcot A power station sometime between 3 and 5am this morning.
We, along with hundreds of others parked in Milton village nearby and had a vantage point across the fields from about 1km away as the crow flies. We were stationed from 2.45am – and in the end it was just about light when the towers went at 5am. We couldn’t hear the klaxon from that distance, but Radio Oxford had the details…
But there are still the other group of 3 towers plus the chimney left – so we’ll still know we’re nearly home whenever we see them on the horizon.
Going back to bed now!
