West London's lesser-known Gem

Jacobean architecture and a rare survival of a former age

Location: Boston Manor Road, Brentford, TW8 9JX

Description: Boston Manor House, is a fine Jacobean manor house built in 1623. Set back from Boston Manor Road in Brentford, the three-storey building is situated in parkland containing a lake and ancient cedar trees.

When you get inside you'll find more than eighty paintings hanging on the walls from the London Borough of Hounslow's local collection - mostly historic views of Brentford Chiswick and Isleworth.

And on further investigation upstairs - the State Bedroom - you'll discover portraits of members of the Clitherow family by George Romney and Sir Godfrey Kneller

Indeed, amidst the modern surroundings of West London, Boston Manor is a rare survival of a former age - Brentford's Jacobean Jewel.

Boston Manor has an active Friends Group. for more information, please visit - www.fobm.org.uk - for more details.
