Other Information

  • Churchill Gardens Accumulator Tower was linked up to Battersea Power Station over the river and designed to provide heating to Churchill Gardens by using excess heat generated by the power station.
  • Despite its revolutionary nature, the tower proved less than popular with residents when they found out that their heating was turned off at 10p.m every night.
