A site that needs little introduction Battersea A Power Station was built in the 1930s, with Battersea B Power Station to the east in the 1950s. The two stations were built to an identical design, providing the long-recognized four-chimney layout. The station ceased generating electricity in 1983, but over the past 50 years it has become one of the best known landmarks in London and is Grade II listed.

I never saw myself coming back here but when a couple of friends travelling from afar got in contact I decided I wouldn't mind checking out the current state of play, @extreme_ironing and @shaddam came along for the ride too. We got around the whole site and didn't see a soul all night, security here seems to be on the ball one minute and completely useless the next. After recent events with another group getting caught and finding themselves in a shitty situation I would recommend using caution here though. They seem to treat this site like it's on holy ground when they catch people but the truth of the matter is it's no different to being on any other site legally. It's just that security are bigger assholes than usual and I have a message for them.

Fuck you asshole security, I've been on your site four times now you dumb twats and I intend to come back for more :upu3:

Gotta love battersea, I wouldn't mind popping back myself as my visit here predates my wideangle lens so I'd like to get some better shots. :)

Haha no way Jose but thanks for the compliment. Others have been way more than me and going back many years too. I have no idea how many times @Dmax has been but he knows the place so well he's actually created a virtual BPS how it was back in the day, it's taken him several years.

 Cheers mate, it's definitely worth the effort (y)
