Here are the details of maps for Barkingside (E):
The tiny village of Aldborough Hatch is central to this map, with Aldborough Hall almost dead centre. Features there include St Peter's church. To the east lies the fringe of Little Heath, with St James church and Little Heath House. This is very rural, but at the left side of the map is a stretch of the GER (later Central line) and Barkingside station. Nearby is the Girls Village Home started by Dr Barnardo in the 1870s. The story of this is given in the notes. Elsewhere I said of the area that "this remains an oasis of countryside, perhaps caused through the planning blight caused by possible airport use" and marvelled "that in 1999 the visitor can still arrive here by train, at a station little changed from that on the map, admire Dr Barnardo's cottages, then follow the same paths, past the same farms, in much the same tranquility". A GER timetable for the Woodford-Ilford line is included, together wioth a directory for Aldborough Hatch.
The map links up with Essex Sheet 78.12 Newbury Park to the south.
