Another landmark in our area is Battersea Power Station which is located just across the river from us. It's a very lovely view to wake up to and it's almost like the sea: It looks different every day - depending on the light and weather conditions!

Battersea Power Station is a now unused coal-fired power station located on the south bank of the River Thames, in Battersea, South London. Battersea A Power Station was built first in the 1930s. 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. The station's celebrity owes to numerous cultural appearances, which include a shot in The Beatles' 1965 movie Help! and being used in the cover art of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals. It has been featured in many forms of media and culture: it can be seen on several album covers by rock and pop groups, in a number of music videos, and has appeared in many films and television programmes in its more than 70 year history.
