Trawsfynydd nuclear power station, North Wales.

The power station, built in Snowdonia National Park in the 1960s to the designs of architect Basil Spence, no longer generates electricity and decommissioning has begun. Its owners, Magnox Electric, have proposed construction of a “reduced height safestore” to house the two reactor cores for 135 years prior to further decommissioning after the radioactivity has reduced.
