It's also called Calder Hall.

My mother grew up in the Lake District, so as a wee'un, I'd be taken
on holiday up there. The nuclear plant was visible from where we were
staying. I'm still relatively normal and have just the normal six
fingers and three eyes.

I'm not convinced that nuclear power plants are any more dangerous
than coal-fired power plants. Coal is pretty radioactive: more energy
could be obtained by fissioning the material in it than burning it.
