Capenhurst

Virgin Voyager heads North

A Perfect Place to Visit

The Urenco site employs over 300 people and provides the local community with long-term employment in a technical environment, as well as opportunities for young people to pursue engineering and scientific careers.

In 1999 the journalist Duncan Campbell published claims that a 50m high tower on the premises of the uranium enrichment plant had been used to phone-tap calls transmitted between the BT towers at Gwaenysgor and Pale Heights, near Chester.

Campbell claimed that the interception was conducted by GCHQ, initially from a temporary installation on the roof of the plant until commissioning of the tower in 1990. The tower was demolished in 2004.

Close to Capenhurst is the Blue Planet Aquarium, the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port, Chester Zoo and the Ness Botanic Gardens.
