Long Description:

The depicted four brick chimneys are key parts of the iconic silhouette of the Greenwich Power Station located at the Thames' riverside close to the Royal Naval College complex in Greenwinch.

The Greenwich Power Station, designed and built by the London County Council between 1902-1910 to power the Council's electric tramways, is one of the beautiful monuments of idustrial architecture in London. The four tapering octagonal chimneys for Phase 1 (1906) of the Power Station were 76 meters high but in response to objections by the Royal Observatory, the height of the southernmost pair for Phase ll was limited to 55 meters.
