History of Brent:
The borough is named for the small River Brent, a tributary of the River Thames that formed the boundary between the former boroughs of Wembley and Willesden. Nut additionally the name Brent is a pre-Roman Celtic one, coming from the name of the goddess Brigantia. The area of Brent has been settled since prehistoric times. For many years Brent was made up of lots of hamlets and small villages yet it is belived that the small communities began as forest clearings. The modern names for these small villages were derived from the original Anglo-Saxon words.
In the 19th century the rural nature of Brent started changing as railways were developing and the ribbon development along the main roads.
After the First World War Wembley Park was selected as the site for the British Empire Exhibition. Lets not forget to mention that Brent is home to one of the most famous stadiums in the world , Wembley Stadium opened on the site in 1923. The Exhibition itself was open in 1924 and 1925.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Brent
Yes I have been watching Brent develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. I am also a serious amateur history buff and didn’t realise how ancient this part of London was back in the old days ! It seems Brent is a kindred spirit to our native Camden. To see that Brent have many regeneration projects around Wembley and Alperton is very intresting too.
