Some people may know the history about this place, but if not, let me put my 2 cents in, and why it is important to me.
Battersea Power Station was designed by my Great Grand Father, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The London landmark is one of England's most iconic buildings.
The conversion of the structure into shops, offices and apartments has been given full planning permission and the green light to start building, the only delay being to see if the owners will have the funds to back the massive project.
Personally I do not like the look of the new project, which will see apartments block all but the river view of the building.
So I needed to get in, Access was comical going solo, and I can't believe how I didn't break any bones with a monumental landing on the way!!
Although the entrance to the upper floors was locked, I tried to make the most of it.
When leaving, I very, very nearly ran (literally) into security! I don't think I have hid like a rock for half an hour with survival breathing for a very long time! They were within a couple of feet of me at one stage
Anyway, on with the pics...
