Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman talked of 'Gentle Brent' in one of his poems, perhaps referring to the River Brent from which the London borough of Brent gets it's name (the river runs through the borough). Created in 1965 when Wembley and Willesden were merged, Brent is in the heart of north-west London and is bordered by the boroughs of Kensington & Chelsea, Barnet, Camden and Westminster among others.
Perhaps Brent's most famous landmark is also it's most controversial; the spiralling cost of work on the new Wembley Stadium is well documented but when the state-of-the-art complex with it's huge trademark arch is completed, it will return to it's place as the national stadium. The borough also boasts some famous residents, comedian Eddie Izzard, Hollywood legend Peter O'Toole and Astrologer Russell Grant have all called Brent home. Brent has a population of 272,000 and is governed by a Labour-run council.
