Notes NOTES: The first of the two coal-fired power stations on this site, Rugeley A, was commissioned in 1963. By 1995 all five of its generating units were decommissioned and the station was demolished in 1995. Rugeley B was completed in 1972 to work with the Station A. This is one of the images taken for 'Manplan 2: Society is its contacts (travel and communication)' in Architectural Review, vol. 146, 1969 Oct.
