Not Brentford

View from Brentford Bridge

View of main road with a pub visible to the left

A second view from Brentford Bridge, looking westwards towards Isleworth: this area was known as 'Brentford End' and the road way is 'London Road'.

Brentford Bridge was rebuilt in 1900, a contemporary article in the Chiswick Times describes how this was done.

The pub visible on the left is O'Briens at 11 London Road, formerly the Northumberland Arms. This is mentioned in the Brentford 53 pubs poem and Gillian Clegg says in her 'Brentford and Chiswick Pubs' that it has been a pub since at least 1853.

Between O'Briens and Brentford Bridge some development is underway.

To the right of the photo, behind a traffic light, the block of brickwork marks the site of the railway bridge over London Road. The GWR spur to Brentford Docks opened in 1859 and closed in 1964. The bridge was dismantled in 1966. For more information and photos showing this area in 1958 and 1962 see 'Then & Now Brentford' by Carolyn & Peter Hammond.

Thanks to Dave Stoneleigh who provided this photograph, taken on June 28th 2008 during the Brentford Festival weekend.
