    a little history..

    Barking A power station Prior to the construction of Barking APowerStation, Barking Urban District Council had operated its own small power station near to their offices since 1897. This station operated until 1927.The County of London Electric Supply Company applied for permission to build a power station capable of expansion to 600,000 kilowatts, at Barking in 1920.They opened Barking Power Station at Creekmouth in 1925. In 1927 it took over from the Barking Urban District Council station, to provide a bulk electricity supply.When completed the A station was the largest power station in Britain to be built as a complete station at one time.The site it was built upon was chosen for easy delivery of coal from the Thames and by rail, as well as the abundant water supply and space on the site for expansion.
