London Borough of Bromley

Approx. 2,300 items, including maps and plans of the borough and, to a lesser extent, of Kent, southeast London and Surrey. OS maps (various scales and editions), together with Geological Survey and land use maps, form a large part of the collection. There are also tithe and estate plans, rights-of-way and administrative maps.

About 200 early OS maps have been put onto microfilm. There are also Reference Books to some of the early OS 1:2,500 sheets, Tithe Apportionment books and Geological Memoirs, as well as aerial photographs for the borough.
