Visit and Have Fun in Battersea, SW11
Battersea lies within the London Borough of Wandsworth. It was a part of Surrey and was built about a church at the mouth of Falconbrook. Once only farmland was to be found here until the industrial revolution came and changed the land, introducing more roads and transportation routes. The big changes arrived with the railways.
Battersea has a number of historic landmarks. Battersea Power Station is a huge edifice, a once coal-fired power station in Nine Elms, built in 1939. Quite a few attempts at restoring the building have been made since the 1980s, so far with no successes. Currently there are plans of turning it into an entertainment complex, but that will happen no earlier than 2020.
Battersea is quite famous for its parks and open spaces. Battersea Park is one of the major parks in London, with its 83 hectares of land for walking, picnics, and biking, and it even houses a zoo. And there is also Shaftesbury Park Estate, which offers a view of past with the area of a thousand Victorian houses it attempts to preserve untouched. The old Battersea Town Hall is now home of the Battersea Arts Centre, an amazing school for theatrical and musical arts. Then there is also the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the United Kingdom’s oldest refuge for stray cats and dogs which, funded entirely with voluntary donations, which cares for an average of 9000 animals a year. And in St Mary’s Church’s yard lies the body of Benedict Arnold, and the church’s window panes commemorate Arnold, the poet William Blake, the entomologist William Curtis, and the landscape painter JMW Turner.
