Bomb damage Brockley

Olly wrote to us recently with a great find for BC's many local history enthusiasts:

I was doing some random internet searches and I came across these maps, outlining the WW2 London bomb damage, which I thought Brockley Central readers might be interested in. The ones below cover most of SE4:

Brockley, Ladywell, Hilly Fields, Nunhead

New Cross, Deptford, Nunhead, Brockley, Telegraph Hill

I found it fascinating to look up my street and see the carnage that was caused and get some insight into the cause of new builds sandwiched between Victorian housing stock.

This site outlines the details of the V1 and V2 bombs incidents that the SE4 residents had to endure (including a couple of strikes on my street: Endwell Road).

Thanks to Olly for the email.
