"Historically, Battersea was situated in Surrey, with the land used mainly for farming. Lavender - giving its name to Lavender Hill - asparagus and pig breeding were just some of its main agricultural outputs."

Battersea Square is a delightful place for a spot of brunch, lunch or dinner, particularly when the sun is shining and you can sit outside!
