Old Ordnance Survey Maps of London

  • These detailed maps maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction. The London maps link up with those for Middlesex to form a major series for the Greater London area. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here are the details of maps for Upper Sydenham:

  • London Sheet 137.2 Upper Sydenham 1894 - published 1997; intro by Brian Green. ISBN.978-0-85054-890-7
  • London Sheet 137.3 Upper Sydenham 1914 - published 1993; intro by Adrian Prockter. ISBN.978-0-85054-555-5

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area developed across the years. The maps each cover the same area, from Clive Road eastward to Kirkdale, and from Crescent Wood Road southward to Crystal Palace High Level station. Features include Gipsy Hill, Sydenham Hill and Upper Sydenham stations, West Hill, Alleyn Park, Kingswood House, Westwood House, High Street, Charleville Circus. The 1894 map also includes part of Crystal Palace Park, incl The Maze. However, the 1914 map has the area of Kent left blank so does not include the Park. For this reason, if you are only buying one version we strongly recommend the 1894 map.

    The map links up with London Sheets 127 Dulwich to the north, 136 Lower Norwood to the west, 138 Lower Sydenham to the east, 145 Crystal Palace to the south.
