FLaunched on the banks of the River Thames, the Battersea coal-fired power station shines this Friday, the day it reopens after 40 years of inactivity. This brick monster, six million in total, is one of the largest in Europe made of this material. Iconic symbols of the listed building and located in the borough of Wandsworth, its four white chimneys have been rebuilt using the same methods and with the same building materials as originally. One of them will soon host a lift that will transport the public 109 meters high and offer a 360 degree view of the whole of South London.
