Looking at the power Station on the peel centre in December 2002.

Post code: BB1 3HT.

The Peel Centre is built on the site of the former power station in Rishton, and is purely a shopping complex.

None of the roads have names, all of them being part of the Peel complex. There are only two roads on the centre anyway.

The Peel Centre is off Whitebirk Drive, and at a staggered junction with Blakewater Road.

There are three shops as you come on the estate, all with car parking, this block of shops back onto the railway line. Then as you turn the junction there are two more shops. Another shop is on the corner of the junction into the second road on the estate.

This road runs parallel with Whitebirk Drive, and leads to more shops on the left, again with their own car parks in front of them There is a block of about 6 stores, before the car park opens up and goes to the canal boundary.

On the opposite side of the road is a DIY store, with a large car park in front of it, and at the end is a store on its own with its back to Whitebirk Drive. This stand alone store is one of the only stores that has never changed hands on the estate.

As you enter the Peel centre, the remaining electricity sub stations are straight facing you, and the road veers round them.

These generator are all that are left of the original power station.

All in all it is a large estate, with a few shops on it, although the change of ownership of the premises seems to have been great since the estate opened.
