I'd seen shots of this eye-catching hoarding on flickr, Instagram etc but still had no idea where it was located. When I went exploring the new Battersea development back in July it was therefore a pleasant surprise to stumble across it. Unfortunately being there quite early on a Saturday morning meant that there were few passersby so despite waiting quite a while I was limited by a lack of interesting subjects (victims ?).

I'm looking forward to returning to explore the area again sometime soon as new parts are opening up all the time.

We're holding our next London Photowalk on Sunday 24th October (tomorrow !) if you're interested in coming along. Click here for more details : www.flickr.com/groups/londonflickrgroup/discuss/721577198...

From Wikipedia : "Construction work on Phase 1, called Circus West Village, designed by architects SimpsonHaugh and dRMM, is being undertaken by Carillion and commenced in 2013 alongside work on the Power Station. Phase 1 was completed in 2017, with the Northern line extension and its new Battersea Power Station terminus anticipated to be completed in 2021. Circus West Village now has over 1500 residents and over 23 restaurants, cafes and retailers now open.

WilkinsonEyre was appointed in 2013 to carry out the restoration of the Grade II* listed Power Station. Work commenced in 2013 and plans included the restoration of the art deco structure internally and externally, reconstruction of the chimneys, and refurbishment of the historic cranes and jetty as a new river taxi stop. Restoration work on the power station's chimneys was completed in 2017. In 2019, the jetty in front of the power station opened to the public for the first time in its history. Retail brands set to open outlets inside the power station include Hugo Boss, Jo Malone London, Uniqlo, Mac Cosmetics, Space NK, Finlay & Co and Watches of Switzerland. In May 2021, the first residents moved into their new homes at the power station. As part of the development, a 200-seat theatre, the Turbine Theatre, was established in railway arches under the Grosvenor Bridge in September 2019.

In October 2013, Frank Gehry was appointed joint architect with Foster + Partners to design "Phase 3" of the scheme, which will provide "the gateway to the entire development and the new Northern line extension"

The glass in the north transept rose window dates from 1722 and was painted by Joshua Price and his son William to designs by Sir James Thornhill (the original cartoons for which are preserved in Chinnor church in Oxfordshire). Sadly the figures of the apostles were badly cropped when Pearson redesigned the tracery in the 1880s and most have lost their feet as a result.

Westminster Abbey is perhaps the most significant church in English History, site of the coronation of monarchs since it was founded by Edward the Confessor, and burial place of the majority of them, along with many other historical figures of note. It is first and foremost a superlative work of medieval architecture, from its soaring 13th-14th century nave, transepts and choir (all in a curiously French inspired version of Decorated Gothic) to the masterpiece of English Perpendicular, the incredibly lacy fan-vaulted Henry VII's chapel at the east end.

The Abbey is also a treasure house of ecclesiastical art, most of it monumental sculpture on the numerous tombs and effigies of almost every date ranging from the entire medieval period through to the 20th century; a somewhat cluttered interior, crammed full of interest, there is simply nothing else quite like it, no other church contains so many monuments.

The Abbey's monastic ranges partially survive, most notably the cloisters and superb chapter house; a short summary of the Abbey's riches is simply impossible. The monastery itself was shut down during the Dissolution, after which the Abbey briefly became a cathedral until its diocesan rank was revoked merely a decade later. Today it is designated a 'Royal Peculiar' owing to its unique status.

The Abbey is a textbook in stone of British history, and thus a hugely popular tourist attraction. It currently has more limited opening hours in the post-Covid recovery period and entry is not cheap, but happily after decades of a strict prohibition against photographers the rules have now been relaxed at last and visitors are now welcome to fully enjoy this marvellous building with their cameras!

One of a sequence of six lancet windows in the north transept with glass designed by Brian Thomas on the theme of the six Acts of Mercy. The windows were installed in 1958 to replace glass destroyed by wartime bombing.
