Avon Bridge Power Station: misc_abps156

View of Avon Bridge Power Station, originally built in 1921, is seen in its final modified form in 1947

This photograph taken when the River Avon was in flood during 1947, shows the Power Station in its final form. By this time the Power Station had also been connected to the national ‘Grid Iron’ system and a 132kV terminal tower can be seen in the background. In 1971, two years before the Power Station closed, the flue arrangement was modified and a single chimney stack was erected.
