Isleworth Brewery Subject of Next Hounslow History Society Talk
How the Farnell Family produced beer in the area for over a century
The Farnell Family – Isleworth Brewery is the subject of Hounslow and District History Society’s next virtual public meeting.
It takes place on Tuesday 26 January 2021 at 7.15pm. The lecturer is Christine Diwell, a well-known Hounslow Heritage Guide.
William Farnell acquired a small local brewery on St John’s Road around 1800. Four of his sons joined and it expanded to become known as the Isleworth Brewery. Christine will explain how the wealth generated therefrom helped the less well-off and the community. Its reputation for producing quality beers and ales endured up to 1948 although the brewery no longer exists.
The site was acquired by Watney, Combe, Reid & Co. Ltd. and, although the brewery has mainly been demolished, parts remain visible.

The next virtual meeting will take place on Tuesday 23 February 2021. The subject is Victorian Leisure: The Organisation of Recreation in London by Ian Bevan, a City of London Guide.
