Battersea Power Station open day

I’ve just found out that Battersea Power Station is going to be open to the public this Saturday (12th July) and next (19th July). I’m gutted I’m going to miss it, but it sounds like a bit of a unique opportunity – you get to go into the turbine hall and everything, as well as view the planned development for the site.

For more info see the Battersea Power Station site and click on the “Consultation” page.

    Hallo Pickles, My name’s Attlee and I’m a friend of Jackie Anderson’s – she told me about your website. I have a website too, http://www.phileasdogg.com, where I write about my travels with my owner, Jane. And, guess what, when I lived in Battersea Dogs Home, my name was Pickle, like you but without the S. Could we be friends? Woof, AttleeXXX
