Not Brentford

St Lawrence's Church, New Brentford

Part of St Lawrence's churchyard, showing WW1 War Memorial

St Lawrence's Church closed in 1961 following nearly 800 years use, initially as a chapel (New Brentford lay within Hanwell parish), then as a parish church for New Brentford. The tower, just visible to the right, dates from around 1480 and is the oldest structure in Brentford. The church walls date from a rebuild in 1764. (Q49)

In the churchyard the WW1 War Memorial is visible to the right. The prominent stone with a cross on top was erected in 1862 by the Grand Junction Water Company, who supplied 'pure filtered water'(Q50).

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