Winsford Salt Mine

[Home page][Climate page]

The Winsford Salt Mine is already an operational facility for storing toxic waste. It has easily enough space to take all the UK's radioactive material.

It has been described in a Sunday Times Investigation and in Ed Conway's book "Material World". It is located near Manchester and Liverpool. It is solid geology, cut into rock salt.

Just a few points.

There is so much more in the article.

This looks like a perfect, already built and running, repository for radioactive material. Never mind multi million or billion pound spends.
