Tour of the station - Turbine hall

Visiting the turbine hall is a visual and auditory sensory overload. There are a lot of photos in this post, but they barely scratch the surface. We were looking at the turbine hall from the viewing gallery, however in the next post I'll upload photos from Didcot A's photography group who were able to get in amongst the machinery.

I found the structure of the building - a great cavernous space - really interesting. It's curious that this space has lots of glazing, shedding natural light on the amazing machines which were the height of new technology in power generation 43 years ago. It is the pride of the station and was designed at the outset to be visited by the public.
