We have published more than 2,500 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, some 500 of them in the London area. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop where further information about titles is given. For other information and Prices, see Index Page.
Here are the details of maps for Beddington Corner:
"The River Wandle runs north to south through the centre of this map and most of the development of the area has taken place along its banks. The river provided the energy to turn the water wheels which powered the various mills and works which were established along the Wandle, many of which date from the 18th century." So begins John Brown's introduction to the map. The works include Eagle Leather Works, Wandle Tannery, Mitcham Leather Works, and there are also various watercress beds. The community of Beddington Corner is shown in a state of construction with roads such as Wolseley Road,Wood Street and New Road partly built. The London Road runs north-south and almost parallel is the railway; Mitcham Junction station is at the top of the map. The map extends west to Greenwrythe Lane, and Ravensbury Park is in the NW corner. Tramway Terrace is a reminder of the earlier Surrey Iron Railway.
