A glass elevator has been announced that will take people to the top of one of Battersea Power Station’s chimneys for views across central London.

The chimneys are being rebuilt, as the originals proved to have decayed to a point which made restoration excessively difficult. As part of the works, the developer has announced that one of the chimneys will be turned into a public lift.

It wont hang on the outside, but rush up the inside of the chimney, to then pop out at the top like a meerkat scouting the horizon.

The Chimney Lift, which will be installed in the North-West chimney is expected to open in 2021.

    So is 2021 the expected opening date of the old power station?

    PS I’ve just been in holiday in Albania and I can confirm your site is blocked there.

    Not sure how it will work out. Sounds like a bad idea to be fair.
