The 'cathedral of power'

Gilbert Scott's Battersea Power Station: commissioned in 1933, abandoned in 1983, and sadly (like the once-majestic Meremere Power Station on the banks of the Waikato) derelict ever since. Known in its day as the 'cathedral of power,' and a London landmark since the day it was built. Like the Meremere station in its day, this is great industrial architecture.

Derelict old buildings are ripe for trespassing "urban explorer" photographers. Battersea Power Station has represented a traditionally difficult entry

Here are some photos from the inside

Gotta have a hobby... Not mine though

Shouldn't there be a pink inflatable pig in the photo?
