Thomas Layton was a keen antiquarian and obsessive collector of books and all things old. He was especially interested in local items and things from the Thames, but collected from all over the world. A successful business man, he also served Brentford as elected councillor for over 50 years. Layton deserves to be celebrated as a local benefactor and a great character of Brentford.
