While previously a sleepy backwater most known for extensive apple orchards, the turn of the 20th Century saw the rapid expansion of London transform the area, creating the elegant rows of Victorian and Edwardian houses that dominate Northfields today.
In a bid to preserve the rural atmosphere, the Victorians set aside large tracts of parkland and planted the tree-lined avenues which make Northfields a pleasant and leafy suburb.
Centrally located between the M4 and A40, Northfields has good access to Heathrow and the West Country, while the Grade 2 listed Northfields Station is located on the Heathrow branch of the Piccadilly Line.
We love the local shops and restaurants along Northfield Avenue and if the weather is fine you might find one of the team taking their lunchtime sandwich into Lammas Park!
Now home to The Brentford Festival, Blondin Park (which is close to the Plough pub) is named after Charles Blondin who lived in Northfields and is famed for crossing Niagra Falls on a tightrope!
