Lock Keeper's Cottage, Brentford, 1997

Fay Twydell has provided this photo from 1997: 'I used to pay the rent to Mr. Barlow, Waterways employee, who was lock keeper here when I was a child'.

The cottage was built in 1911 and stands on the island created when the Grand Junction Canal was cut across a loop of the River Brent. Tolls based on the weight of goods carried by the barges were collected here. The cottage is also visible in Fay's photo of Brentford Lock.

Brick and slate building with white-painted woodwork

See other photos provided by Fay dating from 1997.
