A Little Bit About SW11
The SW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added. The postal district of SW11 covers Battersea and Clapham Junction. The local authorities covering these areas is Wandsworth.
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.
Many rail routes from London’s two busiest termini, Waterloo and Victoria, funnel through Clapham Junction station making it one of the busiest in Europe by number of trains using it, more than one hundred an hour outside peak periods. “Britain’s busiest railway station” isn’t actually part of Clapham, its Battersea. There had been a Battersea station on the site for many years, but in 1863 a junction was added to cope with the growing number of lines and it was named after the perceived more popular village of Clapham a mile away.
