Battersea Power Station is an iconic Grade II listed London building which owes much of its worldwide recognition to Pink Floyd, the seminal rock band who used the building on the cover of their 1977 album Animals. Its opulent interior is a treat for all fans of art deco architecture.
Built in two phases during the 1930’s and 1950’s this coal-fired power station generated over 400 megawatts during its peak years of operation.
The station closed in 1983 after 40 years of operation. It’s now part of a major redevelopment scheme of the area including housing, retail and the extension of the Northern Line of the London Underground to Battersea.
