The Salvation Army's William Booth Memorial Training College on Champion Park, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, was completed in 1932: it towers over South London. It has a similar monumental impressiveness to Gilbert Scott's other South London buildings, Battersea Power Station and the Tate Modern, although its simplicity is partly the result of repeated budget cuts during its construction: much more detail, including carved Gothic stonework surrounding the windows, was originally planned.
Famous residents include Jeremy Bowen
