Battersea Park Road railway station in Battersea, South London was opened by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway in 1867. It closed in 1916 along with other inner-London stations on Main Line.[3] Battersea Park railway station, nearby on a different line from London Victoria, remains open. There is no evidence of the station at rail level, but the bricked-up entrance can be seen under the rail bridge close to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
