Synopsis

Many of London's original power stations have either been demolished, converted for other use, or stand derelict awaiting re-development. But in their prime, these mighty 'cathedrals of power' played a vital role in London's journey towards becoming the world's most important city. Gasworks also played a key role, manufacturing for industry before falling out of favour once natural gas was discovered in the North Sea. London's Lost Power Stations and Gasworks looks at the history of these great places. The focus will mainly be on the most famous and signficant examples, particularly those that are still standing today, but long-demolished and forgotten sites will also be included. Appealing to anyone with even the slightest interest in London history, derelict buildings or urban exploring, this fascinating book aims to uncover a part of London's ignored past.
