Not Brentford

New Brentford, Old Properties 129 - 134 High Street

Two adjoining white painted brick-built properties, both of 3 storeys with ground floor shops, nearest property is boarded up

The nearer block of boarded up properties is numbers 131 - 134. These can be picked out on the New Brentford Tithe map of 1838.

The next block further away is numbers 129 & 130, two properties when the High Street was numbered in 1876. The 1865 OS map shows no. 130 as a public house.

The sign of the Magpie and Crown at no. 128 is just visible: the Magpie and Crown is now set back a little compared with no. 129/130, but originally it shared the same building line as them.

Just beyond the Magpie & Crown the entrance to Boars Head Yard is visible, then the County Parade.

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