Brockley in 1868 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 for this area have been published, stretching from Homestall Road and Ryehill Park eastward to Chudleigh Road and Hilly Fields, and from Brockley station southward to Honor Oak Park station. Features include Brockley Hall, Crofton Park station, Bermondsey Institution, Nunhead Cemetery, Deptford Cemetery, Ladywell Cemetery, tramways, Oak of Honor Hill, a section of the Crystal Palace railway and Newlands. Churches include St Augustine's and St Silas Athenlay Road. The 1868 map is very open, with little development apart from cemeteries. There’s much more building by 1914 when roads include Breakspears Rd, Adelaide Rd, Brockley Rd, Ivydale Rd, etc. The 1868 map includes on the reverse an Inch to the Mile map of East London in 1844, stretching from The Tower eastward to Grays, from Romford southward to Dartford. The 1914 map has extracts from a contemporary street directory.

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.
