Just over 400 years ago, in about 1606 (the calendar has been altered since then so I may be slightly out)there was a seismic event, probably close to the edge of the continental shelf, that sent a massive wave up the funnel shaped Bristol Channel upon which Hinkley Point stands. The water got as far inland as Glastonbury! Nowadays they would call it a 'tsunami'. Now where have I heard that word in connection with a nuclear power station?

Those who forget their history are condemned to repeat it!
