Aerial Images and MapsWe are lucky that some good examples of aerial photography have been captured of early Orpington. The maps we have collected have also helped us determined the dates of certain items within the website. If you have the time you can use the maps below and track the changes that resulted in the Manor Village become a modern Suburban Town.
