Industrial steam at Leicester power station in 1971

Leicester's Freemans Meadow power station opened in 1922. All coal-fired operations ceased there in 1976, when a gas turbine station opened. That operated until at least 1989, but the Freemans Meadow site later became home to Leicester City's King Power Stadium

The power station was still using industrial steam locomotives internally in 1971, when this photograph was taken.
