Battersea Power Station from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Battersea Power Station London England UK. Grade II listed Battersea Power Station was built between 1929 and 1955 with the war causing a break in construction. The building actually contained two separate power stations Battersea A and Battersea B with the A coming online in 1935 and the B in 1955. The responsible engineer was Leonard Pearce and the architects were J Theo Halliday and Giles Gilbert Scott who also built Oxford's New Bodleian Library and Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral. The power station was decommissioned between 1975 and 1983. After removal of the generating equipment it was left as shown in the photograph, abandoned and derelict. Since this photo was taken the building is being turned into a mixed use development.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
