A Pub on Each Corner: Stats and Facts from Griffin Park - The Home of Brentford FC for 116 Years

Jonathan Burchill

Regular price £24.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

From 1904 to 2020, Griffin Park was the iconic, idiosyncratic, and much-loved home of Brentford FC. For 116 years, and deriving its name from the symbol of a brewery that owned the orchard before the stadium, Griffin Park witnessed highs and lows and much in-between, hosting over 2,800 football matches and numerous other occasions. One of a kind, it was the only English football stadium that had a pub on each corner.

In this fascinating book, lifelong Bees fan Jonathan Burchill draws from contemporaneous resources to present a unique history of Brentford through season-by-season reviews of the events at Griffin Park. Recounting stories and statistics from both on and off the pitch - from fires to floodlights, from abandoned redevelopment plans to multiple missed penalties - Jonathan weaves an extended, fascinating insight not just into this remarkable West London football club but into the social history affecting those connected with it for over a century.

As the Bees settle into their new home at Brentford Community Stadium in the Premier League, A Pub On Each Corner provides a comprehensive and insightful account into their time at Griffin Park, and is a must-read for any Brentford fan, old or new!
