Torness Power Station

On Saturday 19 August 2017 the East Lothian Antiquarian & Field Naturalists’ Society made its 4th Summer Programme visit to Torness Nuclear Power Station.

Members thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience finding the strict security procedures, technology and grand scale of operations most interesting.

The guide also alluded to a somewhat unexpected field naturalist aspect being the power station having been awarded the Biodiversity Benchmark by the Wildlife Trusts for its work in protecting and enhancing the unique and diverse wild life around its operation. Most of the Members were not aware of the Torness Coastal Walkway and on another occasion this may be explored.

The visit was rounded off with tea and biscuits provided by the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides.

The next Society visit will be to Keith Marischal House on Saturday 16 September.
