It was on the North bank, just downriver from Wandsworth Bridge. The power station was demolished about 30 years ago and the site was redeveloped (I believe that there is a Sainsbury's supermarket on part of the site) after extensive cleaning/detox of the land. Looking on Google Maps satellite view there seems to be structure parallel to the bank in the river in about the right place for where the jetty would have been, but my memory isn't good enough to be sure.

Never regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last.
