Battersea Power Station’s Glass Elevator To Open Next Year

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Ian Visits.

It sounds like it will give a reason for some tourists to visit the area and it will be a balance to the cable-car in the London Docks.

Ian gives more details about what could be a new experience for Londoners and tourists.

The Coaling Jetty, Battersea

This Google Map shows the riverside to the North of Battersea Power Station.

The area is by no means fully developed, but you can see the two Northern chimneys of the power station and their shadows.

On the river there are two structures; the smaller Battersea Power Station Pier for the Thames Clippers and the larger Coaling Jetty, which was originally used to bring coal to the power station.

This summer the Coaling Jetty has been opened as a free public space with bars, chairs, music and entertainment for children.

I can envisage, as more of the riverside opens up, the site will develop further.

The area is certainly worth an explore and there are several places to get food and drink.

A Walk Past Battersea Power Station – 11th August 2019

I took these pictures, as I walked past the Battersea Power station site last Sunday.

It’s certainly coming on!

This Google Map shows the area, where I walked.

I had taken the Thames Ckipper to Battersea Power Station Pier and then walked down the Western side of the Power Station before following the access road to Battersea Park Road, where I caught a bus.
