The Brentham Institute (now The Brentham Club) was at the heart of the community when the estate was first built. It was originally designed as a much larger building. The Brentham archive holds many photographs, documents and publications from its earlier years.
Only about a third of the original design was actually built – including the iconic Tower.
The Institute was the place for sporting activities, educational purposes, entertainment and social gatherings. Archive material related to these is currently being prepared for display here.
