Not Brentford

View from Brentford Bridge

Tranquil view near junction of two waterways with blocks of modern flats overlooking the scene

A third view from Brentford Bridge, looking north easterly towards the centre of Brentford. The church spire of St Paul's church is visible in the background.

Behind the black footbridge is an island between the River Brent and Grand Union (formerly Grand Junction) Canal. This was formerly used by British Waterways for their depot until the 1980s. The 'Brentford Lock' development was granted planning permission in 2001 and 173 apartments and 20 riverside houses have since been built on the island.

Searches through local history boks have uncovered two photos taken from a similar vantage point: a 1906 photo appears in 'The Archive Photo Series Brentford' by Carolyn & Peter Hammond, p. 107; a 1946 photo appears in 'Brentford Past' by Gillian Clegg, p. 122.

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