EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the stark contrast between the ancient and the modern in the idyllic village of Brotherton, North Yorkshire. The serene Church of St Edward, with its bell tower reaching for the heavens, stands proudly amidst the rolling hills, its foundations laid in 1842. Yet, in the background, the imposing structures of Ferrybridge Power Station dominate the landscape. The power station, a testament to human ingenuity and industrial might, was built on this site from 1926, with three successive stations erected over the decades. The last of the cooling towers, symbols of progress and power, were demolished in 2022, leaving only memories and the faint echoes of their once mighty presence. This poignant image, captured by the skilled lens of Eric de Mare between 1960 and 1980, encapsulates the inexorable march of time and the delicate balance between the past and the future. The church, a beacon of faith and tradition, stands defiantly amidst the ever-changing world, a reminder of the enduring power of history and the human spirit.
