Hyett’s hand-drawn 1807 map
William Hyett produced an amazingly accurate map of the London countryside in 1807, using just pen and paper.
|LONDON STREET FINDER|
Find streets and addresses within the M25 from our database.
One of the aims of this project is one which has not been attempted before in London - a complete history of every street in the capital.
If you have a story about the history of the street you grew up in or one you know well, we'd like to hear it.
If you have a story about an address - being born there, living there, working there or more, get writing.
Of course, if you are not feeling so energetic, you can simply browse the street collection.
|SEARCH FOR STREETS OR ADDRESSES|
Find any address or road by supplying part of the name.
This is the quickest method to find a street that you already know is in the database.
|LIST STREETS BY POSTCODE|
Find all roads, streets and blocks within the M25 that we know about so far, sorted by their postcode:
You can find streets organised by area.
|LIST STREETS ALPHABETICALLY|
