Features include Charlton House, Westcombe Park and Charlton stations, Woolwich Road with its tramways, the Angerstein Wharf railway branch, numerous old sand pits, Charlton Village, and much of the Westcombe Park estate including Mycenae Road and Woodlands. A small portion of Woolwich around Sand St is also covered.

Roads on the 1867 map include Greenwich and Woolwich Lower Road, Lansdowne Road, Church Lane, Charlton Road, Combe Farm Lane, Victoria Road. The 1867 map also includes a tramway into the sandpits (near what is now Charlton FC) and has an extract of the map southward to Shooters Hill Rd. Each version has extracts from early directories.

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.
