We started off the day in the visitors centre, learning about the process of how our electricity is created at a nuclear power plant.
We learnt about all the components involved, and how they are used. In the afternoon, we were privileged to go on a guided tour of Heysham 2 (the bigger of the 2 plants at the site).
We saw the nuclear reactor, control room and generator.
We all had a lovely day and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Heysham Power Station. We would like to thank our tour guides Emma and Julie and all the staff who made us feel so inspired. Thank you.
