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:
Similar view to the first photo, 2008, thanks to Dave Stoneleigh.
Similar view to the second photo, 1966, thanks to Diane Lockie
Janet's earlier photo of the site includes a satellite view that shows the extent of the current phase of development and a plan from Ballymore showing Plots A-L.
