  • Here are the details of maps for Parsloes:

  • Essex (New Series) 87.01 Parsloes 1915 - published 1994; intro by Tony Clifford. ISBN.978-0-85054-668-2

    This detailed map covers the eastern part of Barking, the western part of Dagenham, but in 1915 was entirely rural. "The land about us was flat and uninteresting but it was genuine Essex countryside" said Hardy Amies. The only significant feature is Parsloes Trotting Track, in the centre of the map. The LTS railway runs west-east across the map, still with no stations here. Gale Street and Hallbutt Street are the principal roads. Soon, however, the vast Becontree housing estate would be built and this area would change for ever.

    The map links up with Essex Sheet 79.13 Becontree Heath to the north, 86.04 Upney to the west, 87.02 Dagenham to the east.
