Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station.

Description

Sitting on the south bank of the River Thames, in Battersea, an inner-city district of South West London, the building comprises two power stations, built in two stages in a single building. Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s and Battersea B Power Station to its east in the 1950s. They were built to a nearly identical design, providing the iconic four-chimney structure. The station ceased generating in 1983, but has become one of the best known landmarks in London and is Grade II listed.
