Not Brentford New

Roads Off - A-Z

The list has been compiled from census returns, trade directories and maps 1792 - 1940 and aims to record all roads, alleys and yards which ran off the High Street.

If you have come across any other roads which ran immediately off the High Street that have not been included please get in touch.

  • Name: smaller alleys were sometimes named after the owner and their name changed over time
  • No. before: no. of the High Street property on one corner; if between 1 and 158 the road ran off the south side, if between 159 and 412 the road ran off the north side; see diagram showing High Street numbering; if 'LR' - off London Road, the continuation of High Street to the west, in Isleworth parish
  • No. after: no. of the High Street property on the other corner

NB where a number includes a dash, eg 19-10, the High Street property was demolished before the High Street was numbered in 1876. No. '19-10' was ten properties along from no. 19 and was before no. 20.
