You know that saying: What goes up, must come down? Well, a drone has captured the coming down part, with a short-but-sweet video of the demolition of three massive power plant stacks.
The location of this was in North Yorkshire, at the Eggborough Power Station, a coal-fired behemoth that’s been decommissioned since September 2018. There are apparently plans to replace it with a gas-fired plant. But before that can happen, it’s out with the old.
