Beckenham in 1930 in a fascinating series of reproductions of old Ordnance Survey plans in the Alan Godfrey Editions, ideal for anyone interested in the history of their neighbourhood or family. Three versions have been published to show how this developed across the years - the maps are from different series, for Kent and for London, and so the sheetlines are somewhat different.

The Kent series maps are centred on the village, and later town centre of Beckenham. The 1930 map provides a fascinating companion to the earlier map, surveyed in 1861 but updated to 1871 to include railways, illustratting of how the village developed into a town.

Coverage of the area in 1894 is provided by the London map No. 146.

About the Alan Godfrey Editions of the 25” OS Series:
Selected towns in Great Britain and Ireland are covered by maps showing the extent of urban development in the last decades of the 19th and early 20th century. The plans have been taken from the Ordnance Survey mapping and reprinted at about 15 inches to one mile (1:4,340). On the reverse most maps have historical notes and many also include extracts from contemporary directories. Most maps cover about one mile (1.6kms) north/south, one and a half miles (2.4kms) across; adjoining sheets can be combined to provide wider coverage.
