New UK power stations as celebrated in the Festival of Britain guide of 1951. Although all are said to be new installations, Agecroft dated from 1925; perhaps it’s inclusion referred to an enlargement of the original station. Sadly, all five here have subsequently been decommissioned and demolished. The current Staythorpe dates from 2010, built on the site of the old A and B stations.
