Iconic chimney at Battersea Power Station dismantled in first stage of demolition.

News at Eden Harper | 20/08/2012


The south west chimney at Battersea Power Station is being taken down in the first stage of the demolition of London’s most famous landmarks.

The enormous towers have been badly corroded by sulphur in the coal smoke during the building’s working life as a generator. They are all set to be removed and replaced by replicas over the next two years.

The land and surrounding area are being developed in an £8 billion regeneration push. Under a deal with Wandsworth Council and English Heritage, the Malaysian developers who purchased the power station will be permitted to knock down one chimney and then rebuild it before the other are destroyed.

It’s been reported that the chimneys could be recycled as artworks and playgrounds.
