This page was originally prepared for the general Pembury web site long before the history web site was created.

During its creation and ongoing development the history web site has accumulated many detailed maps of the village, with many specially modified to reflect specific features being described or highlighted. The ‘Localities’ section is rich in detailed maps of specific parts of Pembury.   The ‘Shops & Retail’ section has custom made maps to feature all the old shops and pubs.  The ‘Buildings & Landmarks’ similarly has maps crafted to the topics being featured.
