Why move to Battersea?

Home to both the iconic power station and the famous dogs and cats charity, Battersea is a wonderful spot just south of the river, full of commons, parks and open spaces. South London's well-heeled live here for good reason, and it's just a bridge away from the shops and bars of neighbouring Chelsea.

A little bit of history
Battersea takes its name from an old village that once formed part of a river delta island settlement. Before the Industrial Revolution, the area was mostly farmland, its primary role being to feed the City of London. In the late 18th Century industrialisation took over, seeing the construction of Battersea Power Station between 1929 and 1939. However the 1838 development of Clapham Junction Railway Station probably brought about one of the biggest changes in the area; today the station remains one of the busiest in Europe, with over 2,000 trains passing through it every day.

Need to know
Lavender Hill takes its name from the fields of lavender that once grew there. It was one of the many specialist goods grown in Battersea before the Industrial Revolution.

Shopping
Clapham Junction and St John's Road have all the high street chains you'll need, but Battersea's real highlights are to be found on Northcote Road and Bellevue Road. These roads offer a plethora of cafés, restaurants, boutiques and top-end fashion brands, as well as Northcote Road's daily artisan market. It seems to us that the folk of Battersea must know a thing or two about the good life.

LAVENDER HILL TAKES ITS NAME FROM THE FIELDS OF LAVENDER THAT ONCE GREW THERE. IT WAS ONE OF THE MANY SPECIALIST GOODS GROWN IN BATTERSEA BEFORE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.
