Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station located on the south bank of the River Thames, in South West London.
The Art Deco style Grade II listed building has laid dormant since it’s closure in 1983. After several failed attempts by various owners to revive the building, it is now undergoing redevelopment and will be fully transformed by 2020 when it reopens as part of a regenerated 40-acre site blending office and residential space with shopping, art, entertainment and leisure facilities.
In 2013 as part of Open House London, Battersea Power Station welcomed a restricted number of visitors for the final time before redevelopment works commenced. This is a photo series documenting the station’s last hours in it’s former derelict state.
