Not Brentford

Brentford Redevelopment, April 2022

The south side of New Brentford is being redeveloped by Ballymore and Janet McNamara is keeping a photographic record. For April 2022 Janet has sent two photos showing the early stages of Phase 2 work. The first is a view from the Half Acre and High Street junction, with the Beehive on the corner, and the second shows the two older buildings in more detail. Janet adds:

The site has got hoardings round now but it's the Half Acre junction where Wilson & Kyle were. The sad looking building I think was said to have been their grinding workshop and is supposed to be being kept with, I think, open space around.

The building behind is Jupps warehouse overhanging the canal and the buses are in the Red Routemaster yard in Dock Road. They have to find new premises by the end of May.

Ballymore's newsletter from February 2022 includes an aerial view of the site.

Janet's March photos include a view looking eastwards from the Beehive corner.

Other photos by Janet charting the new development.

Janet's photo from 2002 shows another Wilson and Kyle building that has not been retained, 81 High Street, with memories of Stephen Privett who worked there.

Some photos will be added showing the Phase 2 area as it was in 2008 in coming weeks.
