Interior of Battersea Town Hall on Lavender Hill
A view of the Octagonal Hall in Battersea Town Hall on Lavender Hill, with painted-glass domed roof. Marble columns can be seen supporting stone arches with two plaster maquettes of sculptures by William Calder Marshall: Zephyr and Aurora (L) and Dancing Girl Reposing (R) beneath. The mosaic floor was designed by Jesse Rust, a glass-maker and chemist from Battersea. The town hall was built in 1893 by Edward Mountford. In 1965, the building was threatened with demolition. A local campaign was formed to save the building, resulting in a Grade II* listing in 1970. In 1979, the building was saved from threatened closure again and became Battersea Arts Centre.
