Westwood Power Station was a coal-fired power station situated adjacent to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Ince-in-Makerfield in Greater Manchester, North West England. The station was constructed in 1950. It used two 314 feet (96 m) tall cooling towers to cool its water. The station was demolished in 1989.
The former power station site has been developed into Westwood business park with over 610,000 square feet (57,000 m2) of office space. Another part of the site had been redeveloped into a Girobank office from the early 1990s until it was demolished in 2015 to make way for a 400,000 sqft Nice-Pak wet-wipe factory.
