London, Tate Modern’s chimney has structural problems

With the removal of the scaffolding from Big Ben, it is revealed that another renowned London building would be covered for the next few years.

After a few  structural issues were discovered in the Tate Modern’s chimney, it will be covered in scaffolding for a couple of years, while repairs are carried out on the building.


Even while the Tate Modern will continue to be open as usual, if you want to snap images of the renowned chimney, you will have to do it with the unsightly scaffolding.

Built by Giles Gilbert-Scott, the brick fireplace is 99 metres in length and was built as part of the first phase of the Bankside Power Station.
