BEXLEY HEATH 1862 - KENT SHEET 8.04a
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. Note that in the 1860s the town was still called Bexley Heath; the name Bexleyheath came later in the century.
Coverage extends from Crook Log and Upton Lane eastward to Gravel Hill and a little beyond. Features (taken from the busier 1908 version) include the main Watling Street with individual buildings neatly shown, tramways and depot, Warren Wood, Foresters Asylum, Christ Church, High Elms, Council Offices, Chieveley Lodge, The Mount, Upton area, Red House, Trinity Chapel, cemetery, etc.
The map links up with Kent Sheets 2.16 Bexleyheath North to the north, 9.01 Crayford to the east, 8.08 Bexley to the south.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
WE HAVE AN EXTENSIVE CATALOGUE OF CD'S OF OLD DIRECTORIES SUCH AS KELLYS, PIGOTS & WHITES THAT ARE A VALUABLE RESEARCH RESOURCE OF USE TO LOCAL HISTORIANS & GENEALOGISTS. PLEASE VISIT OUR EBAY SHOP TO SEE OUR CURRENT LISTINGS.
NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
