There are now few traces of Battersea's industrial past, but back in the 1970s the river here was still clearly industrial. Some dates of the closures of major industrial plant in the area include: Morgan Crucible Companyís works (1970); Albert Bridge flourmills (1970s); Nine Elms Brewery (1975); Gartonís glucose factory (1982); Priceís Candles (1980s); Rank Hovisís Battersea Flourmills (1992).
