The London Borough of Wandsworth is a London borough in England, and forms a part of Inner London. The borough was created in 1965 from the former part of the Metropolitan Borough of Battersea and also the Metropolitan Borough of Wandsworth, but excluding Clapham and the majority of Streatham, which were transferred to the London Borough of Lambeth.
The local authority is Wandsworth London Borough Council. As outlined by population estimates created in the middle of 2014, the borough features a permanent population of around 312145 people. You'll find numerous new or refurbished buildings along the borough's prosperous riverside such as the substantial Chelsea Bridge Wharf.
The Peace Pagoda, one of several such international Pagodas is in Battersea Park, a sprawling rectangle often hosting circuses beside the Thames. The London Heliport, London's main and busiest heliport is just beyond Battersea Park and south of this is New Covent Garden Market. In Old Battersea two masonry mansions survived The Blitz, Old Battersea House and Downshire House, both of which hold the uncommon Grade II* status.
