A Little Bit About Battersea
From the early seventeenth to nineteenth century Battersea was known for its market gardening, supplying vegetables, fruit and flowers to the London markets. Asparagus is still sold in Battersea Bunches at Covent Garden market.
Beyond the Thames lay marshland, then market gardens and small villas stretching back to Clapham and Wandsworth Commons.
With the coming of the railway in about 1840 the population of Battersea erupted raising from 4,000 to 12,000 in half a century. With major industrial and housing being built, Battersea Park was planned just in time, thus preventing the area being engulfed by the extensive building works.
One of the first people to sell ice-cream publicly was Carlo Gatti, who arrived from Switzerland 1847. His ice-cream was manufactured in Wandsworth, just near a curve of the Thames on what is now Parkgate Road. In the 1850s he had to import 400 tons of ice from Norway!
Battersea is a busy vibrant place to live with good transport links to town and many local shops, artisan markets and supermarkets. Battersea Park has lots of playground facilities and great walks for families.
