# 329 Abnormal loads passing through Berkeley again

A year ago I wrote about a few giant boilers being removed from Berkeley Power Station to be transported all the way to Sweden to be dismantled. You can read about it and see the photos here and here.

This month and the next the last 10 remaining boilers will be removed and today was one of those days. Their size really is impressive, you can read more about it on this article in the local Gazette.

Just to give you an idea of their size, here's one as it went past the Town hall and the group of people gathered there to watch the manoeuvers .


I have a few more photos on my Flickr account here if you'd like to see them.
