Anybody see anything odd about this map?

Any guesses where it can be found and therefore how helpful it might be to guests?

Obviously the question of location is facetious as there is a bit of a clue.

I'm guessing this is not content provided by the Ordnance Survey

it might not be as wrong as it looks. the big block of flats that runs from Vale Lodge up to near(ish) the station on Perry Vale has Perry Streete written along it (bar the odd missing letter). Could be a historical reference here?

Or, could be by the same map makers that have done that big map on the FH Central hoardings, and decided to call Bermondsey 'Bermondsy'!

Ridiculous! It ceased to be Perystrete maybe two centuries ago (it was definitely Perry Vale by 1843). The block of flats that thenutfield refers to was simply the result of someone plucking a nostalgic name from an old map. This was, and still is, a sometimes absurd way of choosing names for streets and flats.

Biggest joke in my mind is ( Industrial Estate ) . What industrial products are manufactured here or is just a couple of warehouses.

OK, just to be clear, this is the map offered by Southern at the station (under the covered area on the platform) for the local area.

Shows how often we look at it, but I wonder what a lost visitor would make of it

Fair comments and good detective work mate Smile
Are you going to feed it back to Southern?

unfortunately I will not - maybe someone can do it on my behalf?

I wonder who they'll blame for this? The printers? The Council? The historians? The government? Cannot possibly be them or their shareholders!

have fun!

That is bad... Southern should be ashamed of themselves.

Deliberate errors and what you migth call 'quirks' have long been included on maps by the cartographers and publishers to prevent others copying them.

If you think that's bad, have a look at this map that a certain estate agents links to:
http://www.woosterstock.co.uk/Map.php?id...8&y=173637

This is a family site but have a look in the area around St William of York school...
