Not Brentford

Brentford Redevelopment, January 2022

The south side of New Brentford is being redeveloped by Ballymore and Janet McNamara is keeping a photographic record.

These three photos were taken on January 23, and show the approach to the Ballymore redevelopment starting on the western side of Brentford Bridge, then walking eastwards along the High Street into Brentford.

The first photo has a good view of Canal Court (by the bridge to the right), Brentford Lock to the left and cranes. The Six Bells and St Lawrence's Church are dwarfed by the new blocks and both feature in the second photo. The third photo shows St Lawrence's with Block B beyond it.

Janet's fourth photo was taken on 31 Jan 2022 looking down Catherine Wheel Road. Some notes follow this photo.

In the photo above the wording on the two buildings is "Sparks fly anvils ring" and "The tide calling ... ".

Janet also forwarded a notification of work due on 29 January 2022:
You may be aware that Willmott Dixon have been appointed by the London Borough of Hounslow to construct 96 Nr Local Authority Apartments within Block D as part of the wider Brentford Waterside redevelopment
and continues to explain a second Tower Crane was due to be erected.
