Huncoat – Images

The images presented in this Gallery relate to Huncoat’s past, Huncoat today, and Huncoat in the future. We would like to thank members of the Huncoat Community Forum for a number of these images.

Huncoat – The Past

Images in this section reflect the industrial past of Huncoat – the environmental impacts of the area’s mining and power industry and how it changed the landscape.  The photographs show Huncoat Power Station, built in the 1950s and closed in 1984, with buildings subsequently demolished in the 1980s and 90s.
