Route
(Start Battersea Power Station Underground Station (new Northern Line Branch). Meet at main exit (top of escalators, small landscaped area). Please try to arrive in good time as we hope to exit the Brompton Cemetery before the gates shut! The route is intended to highlight the interesting features of this historic area and we begin with a walk past the restored Battersea Power Station (with a detour to new WCs) and join the Thames side path to travel through Battersea Park (see Peace Pavilion) and to cross Albert Bridge (no marching) and along the waterside to Cremorne Wharf and former pleasure Gardens. Moving inland we pass into the areas formerly occupied by Lots Road Power Station to reach Brompton Cemetery where we hope to make a circuit. Turning homewards we aim for Blue Plaque Chelsea and then the Royal Hospital (Chelsea Pensioners), to finish at Victoria Station where there is an optional extension to go to the nearby Wetherspoon (Willow Walk))
