'Battersea in Perspective' by Brian Barnes & Neil Torbett


Battersea, United Kingdom (GB)
Tucked away in a corner of Battersea and located on what was once the Haberdashers Arms on Dagnell Street, is the wonderful ‘Battersea in Perspective’ mural created by Brian Barnes. Back in 1988, Brian contacted Taylor Walker, the brewery owning the pub, and Battersea County School (as it was known then), and consulted local residents to develop a design that incorporated the community's ideas.

The design shows an aerial view southwards over the Battersea area, with Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda central to the design, framed on either side by the Chelsea and Albert Bridges. Along the bottom of the mural are a number of portraits of famous locals.
