Not Brentford

Brentford Redevelopment, January 2021

If you have not visited Brentford for some years the following photos will be a surprise or shock. The south side of New Brentford is being redeveloped by Ballymore and areas of Old Brentford too, over coming years. Janet McNamara sent a couple of photos she took in January 2021.

The first view shows the car park at the north east corner of Dock Road, south side of High Street with Morrisons supermarket, north side of High Street, in the background. St Paul's church spire is visible.

The second photo was taken near the River Brent and looks north eastwards towards the Market Place. The Town Hall and spire of St Paul's church are visible, otherwise the area is cleared, buildings demolished. New blocks are planned here; some older properties have been retained such as Bradbury's warehouses - see Jim Storrar's clip from 2020.

First, Google satellite view from 2021 shows the cleared area, St Lawrence's church is to the left. The second image is a plan from Ballymore showing the Plots. St Lawrence's Church is to the left, Plot A.

Extract from Ballymore's January 2021 newsletter : When complete, The Brentford Project will deliver around 800 new homes alongside 14,000 sq m of retail and 4,000 sq m of commercial space in addition to new public realm - including an extended Thames path. The project will also incorporate 11 buildings and reinstate Brentford's historic connections to the water via a series of distinctive pedestrianised lanes and yards, paying homage to the area's integral role in London's industrial past.
