What to wear at Didcot power station

If you are planning on going to Didcot power station, wear something that you can burn afterwards.

Speaking as an installer of computer systems, network cabling, and other such interesting stuff[1], and having visited the site a few times of the past few years, I can testify that during the hot summer weather, the whole site comes alive.

Really, horribly, alive.

DO NOT wear, for instance, a white shirt. When you leave the site you'll notice thousands of little black flecks on your clothing. It is important that you do not watch them, because you will see them move. You will then have an overwhelming desire to dive headlong into the nearest body of water.


[1] I could tell you about the interesting stuff, but it's probably covered under the official secrets act, the unofficial secrets act, or atleast a non-disclosure agreement of some kind. Suffice it to say that it is A) Interesting, and B) Stuff.
