Battersea Power Station


The triangular-shaped district Battersea resides on the south bank of River Thames in London.

It is bounded by Palace of Westminster; Wandsworth Bridge, Lambeth, Camberwell, Streatham, and Clapham. Also referred by the residents as 'Baronghetti', Battersea offers a majestic yet now disused structure designed and built by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott from 1929 to 1939 - the Battersea Power Station. The structure is on the way of becoming a commercial and entertainment complex and is slated to be completed in 2012.

The city district also has the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, UK's most famous refuge for stray dogs; New Covent Garden Market, a major fruit and vegetable wholesale market; the 83-hectare Battersea Park, home to a zoo and the London Peace Pagoda; Thomas’s day school, formerly known as St. John’s School, founded in 1700; Price’s Candles, the largest manufacturers of candles in the UK; Clapham Junction, the busiest railway station in Europe; and Royal Academy of Dance.

Battersea’s famous residents includes tennis player Greg Rusedski, musician Dannii Minogue, actor Rick Parfitt, fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, comedian Jack Dee and more. The place was also mentioned a lot of times in music including Morrissey’s "You're the One for me Fatty" , Super Furry Animals' "Battersea Odyssey" and Jimi Jamison’s "Battersea." Another huge power station is the

Hoover Dam in Nevada which provides electric for the city of Las Vegas for example.
