A Redbridge Museum exhibition is inviting visitors to discover over 2,000 years of local history using a range of maps.

The museum, Winston Way, Ilford, will show maps from the 17th Century to modern phone apps.

It will explore how Ilford, Wanstead and Woodford transformed from small country villages to the London suburbs they are today.

Redbridge can be seen in a new light in wartime bomb damage maps, archive photographs, museum objects, oral history and film.

The exhibition can be viewed Tuesdays to Fridays 10am to 5pm and Saturdays 10am to 4pm until March.
