WW2 Bomb Damage Map Request
« on: Tuesday 13 October 20 00:50 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

Being cheeky! Does anybody have access to the Bomb Damage Maps for London?

I'm after one in particular that shows Redwald Road and Pedro Street in Clapton Park. I know there were 3 x 500kg bombs that exploded in that vicinity but would like to know if my G Grandparents house was damaged? There's nobody left that I can ask now and it would be interesting to know.

Thanks Dave

Hi Ruskie,

Thanks for getting back on this one.

Yes, this is where I got the original information from, brilliant site to look through. It's the maps that are colour coded with the damage that I'm looking for. I found one on Flickr but it just misses Redwald Road!

Thanks for looking

I have only used the above site for the Roque 1747 map - it appears to have a bomb damage map.
