Battersea Power Station closed it doors in 1975 and was made most famous to the world when it featured on the album cover of Pink Floyd’s Animals. This iconic land mark once powered the city of London.
Sneaky around London at silly o’ clock, hiding under train bridges, crawling through mud and debris, playing cat and mouse with security and spending hours wandering around one of London’s most iconic landmarks in search of this tiny control room which once controlled the mighty Battersea Power Station. In the end, I had to put a call in to a friend to talk us through how the blooming hell you found this hidden room. All worth it, totally insane as always, but wouldn’t have it any other way!!
Battersea Power Station is currently being re-developed into housing. We stumbled across a kingsize bed in one of the show homes and thought it would be rude to take advantage of a group shot. In our defence, there were already muddy footprints on the bed
4am, very cold, very wet, after realising our entry point had been sealed by a security patrol and getting over the initial panic that we had been locked inside the grounds of Battersea Power Station. I thought I would take a gamble and get a long exposure of this iconic building while the rest of the team picked each others brains on how we were now going to get out.
