Dave Stoneleigh has provided this super photographic record of New Brentford on a sunny midsummer day, June 28 2008, during the Brentford Festival. The pointer for each photo shows where the image was taken from and in what direction. The tour starts in the Brentford Bridge area (at the western end of New Brentford) and works eastwards.
The backdrop image is provided by Google Earth.
Larger versions of each of the images will be loaded over time; please use the links below to access these. If there is an image you would like to see that is not loaded just contact me.
