From the rooftops.
Situated on the south bank of the River Thames, in Nine Elms, 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 Power Station was decommissioned between 1975 and 1983 and remained empty until 2014. It was designated as a Grade II listed building in 1980. In 2007 its listed status was upgraded to Grade II.
