Our previous projects included Brent Heritage Walks and Trails, part of Being Brent – Heritage for Health and Wellbeing, a programme funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered by Brent Museum and Archives. As part of the project, we offered in-person guided tours, fun do-it-yourself downloadable history trails and inspiring how-to workshops will show you how to step into the stories behind Willesden’s busy high road, the quiet recreational spaces of Queen’s Park and the rural idyll of the Welsh Harp.  Free resources as legacy of this project can be found here.


If you’ve taken part in any of our activities, we will be grateful if you can give us your feedback. This will help evaluate the success of the project and develop future activities, to bring heritage, health and well being to all Brent residents.
