Battersea Park is a 200 acre (83-hectare) green space at Battersea in the London Borough of Wandsworth in England. It is situated on the south bank of the River Thames opposite Chelsea, and was opened in 1858. The park occupies a mix of marshland reclaimed from the Thames, and land formerly used for market gardens that served the London population. History Prior to 1846 the area now covered by the park was known as Battersea fields, and was once a popular spot for duelling. On March 21, 1829, the Duke of Wellington and the Earl of Winchilsea met on Battersea fields to settle a matter of honour.

as always it's been another busy week. London, as expected,was heaving with thousands, if not millions of people for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations at the weekend. Having caught the bus to Clapham, intending to catch a train to Portsmouth, i somehow got caught up in the crowd and found myself on a bus to Battersea Park where masses of people were heading to see the Royal Barge and the hundreds of boats on the River Thames. while on the bus i was given a ticket into Battersea Park. By this time it had started to rain but everyone was in good spirits and doing what only the English would do, having picnics on the grass in the rain of course. Although i did'nt stay too long, it was a memorable day where everyone was enjoying themselves.
