Battersea Powerstation

Situated on the southern bank of the River Thames is one of London’s most iconic structures – Battersea Powerstation, beloved by all Londoners. Built during the 1930s, Battersea Powerstation provided electricity to Londoners up until the early 1980 before closing and falling into disrepair.

Over the last few years its had several lifelines including converting the structure into a massive theme park, a shopping centre, even a museum and most recently Chelsea Football Club were thinking of relocating. Alas, none have come to fruition and there’s new doubt as to what to do next.

The area is ripe for development and it would be a real loss to London should this iconic building be pulled down for the same same ubiquitous blocks of glass fronted flats taking its place.
