The borough dates from the London Government Act of 1899, and includes the greater part of the original ecclesiastical parish of St. Mary Battersea. Under the same Act Penge, formerly a hamlet of Battersea, was constituted a separate urban district...the curious anomalies of local government led to Penge's formation as a separate urban district and its transfer to the county of Kent in 1900. This would join London with neighbouring parishes in 1965. Penge was a wooded district, over which the tenants of Battersea Manor had common of pasture.

The building was taken over by Gordon-Duff and Linton (architects) in 2014.
