Battersea is an area of the London Borough of Wandsworth, England.
Within the bounds of modern Battersea are the following Landmarks:
|•||New Covent Garden Market, a major fruit and vegetable wholesale market, resited from Covent Garden in 1974. (Also considered by many to be in Nine Elms).|
|•||Battersea Power Station an iconic edifice designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, built between 1929 and 1939 (featured, with flying pig, on the sleeve art of Pink Floyd's album Animals). There have been a number of failed regeneration projects since the late 1980s. The current proposals are to convert the disused shell into a mass entertainments and commercial complex, with dedicated transport links (a proposed extension of the Northern Line from Kennington could be complete by 2015). It is planned that the renovations will be completed in 2012. Following the site's 20 year history of failed regeneration projects, there is however scepticism locally that the latest plans will ever materialise, and there is opposition to them.|
|•||Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, formerly Battersea Dogs Home and prior to that the Temporary Home for Lost and Starving Dogs, established in Holloway in 1860 and moved to Battersea in 1871. It is the United Kingdom's most famous refuge for stray dogs.|
|Battersea Park, an 83 hectare green space laid out by Sir James Pennethorne between 1846 and 1864 and opened in 1858, and home to a zoo and the London Peace Pagoda.|
|•||Shaftesbury Park Estate, conservation area consisting of over a thousand Victorian houses preserved in their original style.|
|Battersea Arts Centre, in the former Battersea Town Hall|
|Northcote Road, a bustling and famous local shopping street with its own market at the centre of the so-called Nappy Valley.|
|•||Clapham Junction railway station, by at least one measure — passenger interchanges— the busiest station in the United Kingdom and named after the neighbouring town of Clapham although it lies in the geographic heart of Battersea, SW11.|
|•||St Mary's Church, Battersea. Benedict Arnold is buried here. Four stained glass windows celebrate Arnold, William Blake, William Curtis and J. M. W. Turner.|
|•||Sir Walter St John's School, now Thomas's day school, was founded in 1700. Parts of the present building date back to 1859.|
|•||Royal Academy of Dance, containing several studios and associated with the University of Surrey.|
|•||The London Heliport, London's busiest heliport, sited on the Thames a half mile north of Clapham Junction station.|
|•||Price's Candles on York Road, was the largest manufacturers of candles in the UK; now it has been converted into residential flats.|
