River Brent — from Brentford to Perivale

Following the River Brent through west London from its namesake Brentford up to Perivale, I discovered an eclectic range of sights, including:

  • a 17th century manor house,
  • an 18th century flight of locks,
  • from the 19th century, Isambard Kingdom Brunel's first major structure,
  • from the 20th, a magical accidental motorway-cathedral-island,

all mixed up with some delightful (and some fairly average) parks, and rounded off with a nice sunset.
