The Battersea Society: Welcome to the Battersea Society website


GIve us your views on the future of Clapham Junction

Clapham Junction station is at the heart of Battersea's town centre. Its present state is a disgrace, and even dangerous. The Battersea Society is continuing its campaign for major improvements, working with the Clapham Junction Action Group. In devising a strategy we want to know what your concerns and priorities are. Please take a few moments to answer the following questions. The more informative your answers are, the more helpful they will be to us. If you provide us with your name and email address we will be able to get back to you in due course with information on the progress of the campaign. We value your privacy and will not use this information for any other purpose.
