    So here we go again, yes another report from BPS, but its such an amazing place and we had a right good laugh the 4 times we went, in a two week period in Sept. It was a surprise that we only meet three people inside, what with all the traffic visiting this vast tourist trap!
    Every time i traveled up to London from when i was a boy to now, i was always fascinated by this big power station and i never in a million years would have thought that one day i would be standing a the base of one of the iconic chimneys, happy days
    Visited first with Tig and BigBadAsh and what an amazing time we had! A massive thanks goes to BHG for giving us a route in, i know you guys did the ground work so
    a big thumbs up to you all:thumb
    Spent about 5 hours in there but as you all know, that's just not long enough, so had to return to complete our journey!

    Now for the important history of Battersea Power Station
    You all seem to have missed the really important bit of history about this epic site, apart from BHG who added this gem
    The Meaning of Life (7/11) Movie CLIP - Find The Fish (1983) HD - YouTube

    This was my first memory of BPS in modern culture
    The Jam - News Of The World (1978) (HQ) - YouTube
    Happy times,i lived and breathed The JAM back in the day:)

    Then you have this iconic BPS moment

    Also the mighty Hawkwind used Control room B for their Album Quark strangeness and charm

    Also more recently BPS was used in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises and a recent episode of Sherlock

    Thanks for looking
