Chapelcross Nuclear Power Station - Chapelcross, Dumfriesshire

Number One reactor is now generating at Scotland's first 40m nuclear power station, which will be officially opened tomorrow (May 2) at Chapelcross, near Annan, in Dumfriesshire. The station, built on a disused airfield, will increase Britain's supplies of military plutonium and when in full production will provide come 140 megawatts of electricity for the national grid. Its other three reactors will be commissioned at intervals throughout the remainder of this year. Construction of the Chapelcross station - which is of the same type as Calder Hall, Cumberland, is the first nuclear power station in the world to produce electricity on an industrial scale - was begun in October 1955.

The famous old blacksmith's shop, Gretna Green, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, 20th century. Artist: Unknown

The famous old blacksmith's shop, Gretna Green, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, 20th century. This building, just over the border with England, became famous after 1753 as a venue for runaway marriages of English couples. Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act stipulated that if both parties to a marriage were not over the age of 21, parental consent had to be obtained. The Act did not apply in Scotland, hence many couples who were not prepared to wait eloped and were married in Gretna, the first village they encountered in Scotland
