London Bomb Map

This map is the best record we have of bomb damage suffered by London during the Second World War. It was drawn up by London County Council and colour-codes how serious the damage was street by street across the city. The larger circles are where German V1 flying bombs fell and the smaller circles are V2 rockets.

On the map you can see that a V2 rocket landed very close to Charlton House. The photographs show restoration work to the damaged wing of the building just after the war.
