    Killing us with a glow

    Took a wrong turn outside Lymm tonight, ended up headed Runcorn-way rather than over the miraculously eight-lanes-open Thelwall Viaduct. Still, the slight detour around the Mersey Basin was worth it for the spectacular view of Rocksavage Power Plant, here captured on film by Richard Kempton. It is breathtaking by day, stupendous at night. Icon of the Cheshire chemical hinterland, what Rocksavage manufactures I'm not at all sure. It's probably killing us. But if so, then it's killing us, with a glow.
