The first houses in Brentham built by Ealing Tenants were completed in 1901. Read about the history of Brentham from its beginnings, through two world wars, to the present day. May Day celebrations with street processions and dancing round the maypole were not uncommon during the early part of the twentieth century, but it is
rare for the celebrations to survive into the twenty-first century as they have done in Brentham. The architecture, much of it in the Arts and Crafts style, draws visitors from all over the world. Find out about the distinctive architecture and the architects who designed the houses. We’ve included a snippets page, with some of our favourite ‘did you knows’ about the pioneer garden suburb.
