    Just for context, the reason @StoneRiver and I are moderately excited by this is because the power station is only about 6 miles (10km) from where we both grew up and went to school.

    Only decomissioned in 2013, Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation filmed there too in 2014 for the scene where Cruise breaks into the industrial complex where his character does the 6+ minute dive sequence.

    The Control Room also featured as the World Control Centre in 1976's Rollerball.

    The site has also been used more recently in a British TV show called Spies and the most recent series of Red Dwarf (for anyone outside of the UK who's heard of it).

    For anyone who's interested, you'll find the actual location here.
