These are copie of the 1869 local OS map and an original 1931. It’s alarming to look at the total loss of the orchards and farmland even since 1931….which I suppose is getting on for 100 years ago now.
The third map shows the planned developments known about as of September 2018 - there are lots of new houses planned for Rainham, can it cope with such an increase?
