Battersea Power Station
Battersea, London

Battersea Power Station was coal-fired and generated energy from the 1930s until its closure in 1983. It is a Grade II listed building, and is the largest brick building in Europe. The site has been subject to a number of redevelopement proposals, and after the previous failure in December 2011 the site went through another bidding process in Spring 2012, with Malaysian company SP Setia and Sime Darby chosen as preferred bidder in June.

The power station has never appeared in it's own right as a location, but has cropped up in stock footage and in 'modified' forms.
