"The latest issue of the local history society’s journal may have the widest range of subjects ever according to its publishers.

The thirtieth annual Brentford & Chiswick Local History Journal covers subject as the Thornycroft family, a Hugenot in Chiswick and Brentford FC in less glorious times.

Mike Paterson provides another appropriately topical article. His enthusiastic account of the history of Brentford Football Club covers bankruptcy, two World Wars and life at the top table of football as well as in the four lower divisions. It also marks the year of the Club's promotion and its move to the new stadium."


I don't know who Mike Paterson is (a member of GPG?), or whether his piece covers original research, or whether it's a summary of information already in existence.

But for anyone interested, it can be ordered here for £6.

P.S. If this should properly be in 'Chit Chat' or some other section, can a Mod please do the necessary?

Mike Paterson runs the group 'London Historians' https://www.londonhistorians.org and is based in Brentford and is a fan. He asked me to stress that his article is about the history of Griffin Park and not specifically about Brentford FC.
