The Battersea Power Station was a coal-fired power station and is now a protected Grade II building. Standing as an art deco icon of the old smog-filled industrial London, this building is universally recognised as it was on the cover of the 1977 Pink Floyd album 'Animals'. Inoperational since 1983, it is best viewed from a distance on the north side of the Thames at Chelsea.
