The Washwood Heath site is located about 3 miles north west of Birmingham city centre in the West Midlands, UK and is closely bounded on its northern border by railway, river and new road. Along from the gas tanks is the remains of the base work of two cooling towers that were part of the Nechells B Power Station which was decommissioned and eventually demolished throughout 1985/86. The area has now been re-developed as a leisure complex.
