A sketch of a bridge crossing the River Brent on Brent Street, in the manor of Hendon. The village of Hendon is mentioned in Domesday Book as Handone, and at that time belonged to Westminster Abbey. Brent Street was an early hamlet but now is a shopping street. The River Brent flows in a southerly direction from what is now the Brent Reservoir at Welsh Harp, through Neasden to the Thames at Brentford. It is thought that this bridge was built in the mid 18th century.
