The Underground Map is creating street histories for the areas of London and surrounding counties lying within the M25.

In a series of maps from the 1750s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post-war megapolis we know today.

The aim of the project is to find the location every street in London, whether past or present. You are able to see each street on a present day map and also spot its location on older maps.

There's a control which looks like a 'pile of paper' at the top right of the map above. You can use it to see how an area has changed on a series of historic maps.

St Dunstan’s, Stepney is an Anglican church which stands on a site that has been used for Christian worship for over a thousand years. In about AD 952, Dunstan, the Bishop of London who was also Lord of the manor of Stepney replaced the existing wooden structure with a new church (probably including stone elements) dedicated to All the Saints. In 1029, when Dunstan was canonised, the church was rededicated to St Dunstan and All Saints, a dedication it has retained. Like many subsequent Bishops, Dunstan may have lived in the Manor of Stepney perhaps at the Bishops Wood residence.

Dunstan is likely to have had a very ’hands on’ approach to building the church. There are so many legends regarding Dunstan such as those relating to iron in folklore that some historic accounts are disregarded as ahistorical; such as those describing Dunstan physically moving a whole church so that it better aligns with the traditional East-West axis.

The church is known as "The Mother Church of the East End" as the parish covered most of what would become inner East London before population growth ...
