  • Here are the details of maps for Forest Hill & Catford:

  • London Sheet 128.2 Forest Hill & Catford Bridge 1894 - published 2005; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-778-0
  • London Sheet 128.3 Forest Hill 1914 - published 1991; intro by Adrian Prockter. ISBN.978-0-85054-438-1

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area developed across the years. The maps each cover the same area, stretching from Honor Oak Road and Dartmouth Road eastward to Nelgarde Road and Berlin Road. The west side of the map covers the Forest Hill area, around and including the station, extending north to the south side of Honor Oak Park station. On the east side of the map are Catford and Catford Bridge stations, St Dunstan's College and Ladywell Recreation Ground. Stanstead Road runs between the two areas, and to the north of this are Brockley Rise, Brockley Hill and Ravensbourne Park. The various churches - Christ Church, St George's, St Saviour's Brockley Rise, St Paul's - reflect the development of the estates. Tramways run through the map. Fragments of the old canal can be found. There are street directory extracts on both maps.

    The map links up with London Sheets 118 Brockley to the north, 127 Dulwich Village to the west, 129 Catford to the east, 138 Lower Sydenham to the south.
