A virtual reality tour is being offered behind the scenes at Scotland’s first nuclear power station. Visitors to the Devil’s Porridge Museum in Eastriggs can don a headset to look around the old Chapelcross site. It will allow them to see into high-security areas including the reactor control room and tritium plant. Museum chairman Richard Brodie said that although there was a village called Springfield nearby it was hopefully “nothing like” the Simpsons. The Chapelcross site, near Annan, is currently being decommissioned after its landmark cooling towers were demolished more than 10 years ago. However, its heyday is being brought back to life by the new exhibition. The virtual reality (VR) tour allows a glimpse inside the power station where vital elements were also produced for atomic bombs.
