Kennington and Walworth in 1894 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 to show how it developed across the years, stretching from the east side of Vauxhall Bridge eastward to Walworth Road and a little beyond, and from the south end of Elephant & Castle station southward to Cranmer Road and Addington Square. Walworth Road and Kennington Park Road run north-south through the map, whose many features include the Oval cricket ground, Vauxhall and Walworth Road stations, tramways, Kennington Park, Vauxhall Park, London Pottery, Lambeth Pottery, the end of the Surrey Canal, Surrey Gardens, Lambeth Workhouse and many churches. Each map has directory extracts.

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.
