Battersea Nocturne, a guided walk
Tue 30 May 2017, 20:00 – 22:00 BST
A twilight walk among today’s “landmark” buildings along Battersea’s riverside looking for the evidence of earlier industrial landmarks such as the factories of Morgans Crucible and Prices Candles. These buildings which once dominated the river front are now almost completely vanished, but they live on in James Whistler’s paintings and etchings of Battersea made in the 1870s and 1880s.
The price of the guided walk includes a free copy of Jon Newman's just published walk booklet, Battersea Nocturne; a walk through James Whistler’s Battersea
