I found this old road atlas that covered the UK and showed the road network in Kent in 1964 when the M2 motorway had just been built and opened and the M20 was known as the A20(M) and only bypassed Maidstone from Allington to Hollingbourne. It's hard to imagine now but the M20 was only completed in 1989 to link Hollingbourne to Folkestone!
