In the mid 19th century, the St Nicholas Parish Council elected to construct a purpose-built vestry hall: a site on Turnham Green, which had previously been open land, was purchased for the benefit of the parish in 1874. The new building was designed by William Joshua Trehearne in the Italianate style and opened in 1876.
The building became the town hall of the merged Municipal Borough of Brentford and Chiswick in 1927 but ceased to be the local seat of government when the enlarged London Borough of Hounslow was formed in 1965. It was subsequently used as a local register office until Feltham Lodge became the main register office for London Borough of Hounslow but it still remains an approved venue for marriage and civil partnership ceremonies.
