Very sci-fi feel to this shot. The absence of any people adds to the mystery. Incidentally, it was only Sizewell 'A' that was closed in 2006. Sizewell 'B' (the one with the dome) is still fully operational.
Thanks for the interesting shot Karen.
Karen you were in my home land, I had actually been in the first one by a friend who worked there but had not a clue about what was being explained ! ,
