Battersea Power Station in 2010

Battersea Power Station

I'm a little bit obsessed with this beautiful building which is now Grade II* listed, being listed on 14th October 1980.

Whenever I go to London, I try to photograph this iconic building, but I know that it no longer looks like this - I hope it looks better, but I don't think it will.

The building comprises two power stations, built in two stages, in a single building. Battersea A Power Station was built between 1929 and 1935 and Battersea B Power Station, to its east, between 1937 and 1941, when construction was paused owing to the worsening effects of the Second World War.

The building was completed in 1955. "Battersea B" was built to a design nearly identical to that of "Battersea A", creating the iconic four-chimney structure.

Location: 188 Kirtling St, Nine Elms, London SW8 5BN.
