This building on Renforth Street, Rotherhithe is listed Grade 2 (listed building number 471228 or Heritage asset number 1385816 as from 2011).

According to the list description, it was built in 1902 for the London Hydraulic Power Company. As well as the chimney at the right of the photo there was an "accumulator tower" (surge shaft) just visible to the left rear. All these remained in their original use until the surprisingly late date of 1977. Thereafter it was used as an engineering works and eventually converted to residential use. For another view and more history, see TQ3579 : London Hydraulic Co - Renfrew Street, Rotherhithe, SE16.
