Abandoned Jetty Inverkip

Published: 13 Mar 2018

This Jetty was part of the now demolished Inverkip Power station. The Jetty was used to accept deliveries of oil, that was used to fuel the power station.

The power station was built in the 70's, but with ever increasing oil prices it soon became clear that the power station was not viable. It was retained as a strategic reserve but was only used for a short period of time during the coal miners strike in the 1980's. The site was closed in 2006 and has since been demolished. The Oil Jetty is one of very few remaining features on the site.
