The undiscovered waterside in the west
The undiscovered waterside in the west

The Brentford Project situated at the meeting point of the River Thames and River Brent, surrounded by Kew, Chiswick, Ealing and Richmond. Brentford is away from the rush, yet directly connected to the City and wider world, with Brentford Station just 5 minutes away. Within view of River Thames and on London’s doorstep, this is a place to make a home, with a mix of urban and rural escape.

Locally are many of the world’s most successful music, entertainment and leisure brands, as well as a thriving new generation of emerging enterprises. To the south and west are wide open, wild spaces rich in natural life. The re-discovery of this hidden gem sees the Yards and Lanes of this proud West London town re-established, and the water’s edge brought back to life.

Few places on the Thames would have rung to the sounds of industry in the same way as Brentford and its riverside. The confluence of the River Thames and the River Brent was the source of a blossoming of trade, establishing a place that performed a critical role in the movement of goods and raw materials. At Brentford Dock, built to a design of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, shipments would transfer from river to rail, and vice versa. Barges, that paused in their steady progress along the Thames would release their cargo to the freight carriages of the Great Western Railway. Makers could be found down the lanes and in the yards, from the timber mill at Montgomery’s Wharf to potteries, brickworks and breweries, Brentford’s industrial past leaves an irreducible outline that The Brentford Project is proud to retrace.

Re-connecting the waterside with Brentford’s bustling high street is an important outcome of The Brentford Project. A wide ranging initiative, it has been conceived to celebrate the creative diversity of the town with new venues and spaces that will establish a bold platform for the arts, live music and food. It’s a development that will improve and enhance the lives of residents and visitors alike by establishing a new residential quarter, a vibrant dining, entertainment and retail scene and an exciting new facet of this proud West London community.
