Around Orpington Through Time invites you to explore the fascinating history of Orpington and its district through 'then and now' photographs. The Industrial Revolution of the latter part of the nineteenth century had a big impact on the area, along with the coming of the railway in the 1860s, and the arterial road built in the 1920s changed Orpington forever. Orpington and the surrounding areas have played their part on the world stage, but it is the change within the past 100 years that this book focuses on. Covering Orpington, Chelsfield, Crofton, Downe, Farnborough, Green Street Green, Locksbottom, Petts Wood, Pratt's Bottom, St Mary Cray and St Paul's Cray, this is a 'must-have' step back in time for any resident or visitor familiar with the area.
