The original site consisted of three coal-fired stations situated at River Road. The development began in 1920 when the County of London Electric Supply Company applied for permission to build a power station at Creekmouth in Barking. Barking Power Station opened in 1925 and when completed, it was the largest power station in Britain to have been built as a complete station at one time.
