'High Merit': Existing English Post-War Coal and Oil-Fired Power Stations in Context

Author(s): Jonathan Clarke

Post-war coal or oil-fired electricity generating power stations, with their massive cooling towers are becoming increasingly rare as they come to the end of their service lives. This report puts them into their historical, technological and engineering context. Jonathan Clarke carried out this research over the course of 2013. The work was originally commissioned by English Heritage - now Historic England - as scoping work for the National Heritage Protection Plan's Responsive Designation activity. Where the report refers to the work of English Heritage, these functions are now carried out by Historic England.
