Time Out says

A Grade II-listed Art Deco masterpiece, and Europe's largest brick building, Battersea Power Station is a London icon that has appeared in films such as Alfred Hitchcock's 'Sabotage' and Monty Python's 'The Meaning of Life', episodes of 'Doctor Who' and, perhaps most famously, on the cover of Pink Floyd's 1977 album 'Animals'. But it has grown ever more derelict since it finally stopped producing electricity for the capital in 1983 – and is a graveyard for a succession of redevelopment schemes. Things could be looking up for this much-loved building, however. The latest plans for the 40-acre site include thousands of new homes, shops, a new park and an extension of London Underground's Northern line.
