Work to dismantle the remaining three of Battersea Power Station’s iconic chimneys will kick off in the coming weeks after the first of the chimneys to be rebuilt successfully reached half of its full height.
The huge concrete towers were badly damaged by the coal smoke they emitted during the building’s working life and are all being demolished and replaced by replicas.
The south west chimney, which was the first to be dismantled last year, is now halfway through being rebuilt and it is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
It needed to reach 25 metres in height before the power station’s developers could start work on the last three chimneys.
