    Default Fawley Power station

    Contacted by a fellow forumite to tell me the skyline might look a little different when I trundle down the Hamble next time as they have started the demolition of Fawley Power station... just thought I would have a look to see if there were any photos on the internet showing what has gone and found this article..

    https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/179...redevelopment/

    doesn't show much of what's actually gone but it does show what they hope to develop.... by the looks of it we might be getting another place to visit.. I think it looks quite nice.. certainly nicer than an abandoned power station.

    It’s going to look very odd when that chimney goes. People, including me, have used it as a point of reference for years.

    Crikey is that what it was. I’m 10 miles as the crow flies from there and I thought Concorde was flying again and went over my house!. Thunderous and fairly prolonged noise.

    I hope, but don't think it will ever, look like those images. I just can't see it being viable. It's an awful commute from there to any reasonable sized places of employment, which is why house prices are cheaper as you get closer toward Calshot. I hope I'm proven wrong, I'd love to see it succeed

    Nav will be different when we lose the FBC.

    They are supposed to be building an equally tall and well lit building/structure to take the place of the chimney. There was talk about putting a restaurant on top of the chimney but, that fell by the way side !!
    At least the new forest skyline will look less industrial !

    The new plans are a revelation, and I hope they succeed, it represents good progress for the area
