Battersea Junction

Stories from Winstanley and York Road Estates

We have been exploring this history from the perspective of the people who have been living on the estate, whether they are from families who have lived in Battersea for generations, or have moved in more recently.

Year 6 children from Falconbrook Primary School worked with Emma Anthony, archivist from Wandsworth Heritage Service, and a local historian to explore the history of the area, what was there before and why it was built.

After these workshops and activities the children worked with digital:works to understand oral history techniques and recording. They then developed interview questions which allowed them to conduct and record oral history interviews with current and former residents.

These interviews have been edited and combined with archive and personal photos as well as archive footage to make a unique and fascinating educational documentary film starring local people which you can watch here.
