South East London map box / framed map
From Woolwich and Thamesmead in the north – the latter featuring that masterpiece of Victorian engineering: Crossness Pumping Station – all the way down to Royal Tunbridge Wells in the south – one of only three towns in the UK to hold royal status, this extensive map covers a large swathe of the southern London and Kent.
Map boxes are a stylish addition to any wall; their colour, detail and vintage charm is brought to life thanks to the unique way they are framed.
Carefully and professionally crafted from American black walnut in our workshop by the Thames, the maps are cut to perfectly fit the back and sides of the box, giving an additional depth to the region and topography featured.
They also double as a shelf for keys or sunglasses, making them ideal to use as a tidy in a the hallway or living room.
This map box is of South East London. It extends all the way from the Thames by Woolwich down to Royal Tunbridge Wells. It is an Ordnance Survey map, number 171, and is from c. 1940.
The perfect gift for a wedding or birthday, featuring an area, city or country that they love!

Please note: whilst these boxes are fresh out of the workshop, some of the maps they feature are vintage and most are decades old, one or two even a century! Their condition is used. Part of their charm lies in the creases of the repeated folds, an errant stain from a picnic or even the odd note or mark added to highlight a route or destination.
Your map box comes ready to be hung from a slotted picture plate hanger (included). They only weigh a few kilos and will happily hang from a picture pin, nail or small screw.
We also make map boxes to order!
Please get in touch to order a bespoke box featuring… the area you grew up, where you honeymooned, your dream trip, or perhaps your loved one’s favourite cycle route! The possibilities are endless and sure to provide a talking point with guests.
