    6 Quirky Facts About Battersea

    1. Spending A Penny
      Ladies were originally charged a penny to use the public toilets in Battersea Park. However, when the charges were removed, the richer ladies of the area complained and so the charges were reintroduced. Another female revolt occurred in the 1890s when ladies, banned from riding bicycles in Hyde Park, turned to Battersea Park instead, this time it was rich gentlemen who objected.
    2. During The War
      Only Fools and Horses’ Uncle Albert (aka Buster Merrifield) was born in Battersea, ‘during the war’. Actually, we made that last bit up, Merryfield was born in November 1920. Other Battersea residents have included; Gordon Ramsey, Jack Dee, Simon Le Bon and Roger Moore.
    3. Brown Dog Riots
      If you happened to be in Battersea Park one morning in 1985, you’d have seen a new statue going up of ‘The Brown Dog’. In truth, it wasn’t a new statue at all but a recreation of a statue that had been taken down in 1910. The original statue had been erected in honour of animals that had suffered vivisection at University College. Medical students at the college took offence and repeatedly defaced the statue and in 1907, 1,000 students marched in protest, clashing with police in what became known as the Brown Dog Riots. Eventually Battersea Council took the statue down due to the cost of protecting and repairing the statue plus the controversy it caused.
    4. Power to the People
      Battersea’s most famous landmark, Battersea Power Station started producing power in 1933 despite being only half built, the four towers took a further 20 years to complete. Heat from the station attracted cats and soon a colony of over 200 moggies were living wild around the site. Giles Gilbert Scott who designed much of the outside, also designed the Tate Modern and the iconic red telephone box. During WWII, fearing a German Invasion, the government used the station to burn bank notes from the Bank of England to prevent them from falling into enemy hands. It wasn’t the last time the fires were used for security, in the 60s and 70s the American Embassy sent armed guards to dispose of ‘confidential documents’.
    5. A Dog’s Life
      Having been established in Holloway in 1860 by Mary Teale, The Temporary Home for Lost & Starving Dogs moved to Battersea in 1871. Originally The Times had publicly ridiculed the idea of a home for dogs but one of its most ardent defenders was Charles Dickens, who along with other famous names of the day, helped turn the tide of opinion by highlighting the important work the home was doing. By 1864 Teale and her team cared for 2,000 dogs a year and during WWII the site fed and homed over 145,000 animals. Today Battersea Dogs & Cats Home cares for up to 240 dogs and 145 cats at any one time.
    6. When all this was fields…
      Originally known as ‘Badrices ege’ (possibly meaning the island of a man named Badric), at the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, the name was recorded as ‘Patrisey’, by then the area was owned by the Abbey of Westminster and consisted of 70 houses, putting it in the top 20% of most populated settlements in England. Battersea eventually became the property of the Spencer family (the lineage of Lady Diana Spencer, who became Princess Diana), it was under their ownership that the area was developed to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers for London markets.
