St Lawrence's Church (former), High Street, Brentford - Hounslow

Former C15 church tower, with nave dating from 1764 by Thomas Hardwick and later Victorian additions. The building has been empty since the 1960s and stripped of its fittings. Extensive stonework repairs are needed, along with works to the roof and rainwater goods. Proposals for a wider waterside development, including repair and restoration of the church and its re-use were approved in December 2014. Repairs have stabilised the building until its full repair and conversion, expected in 2019-2020.
