An exhibition inviting visitors to discover over 2,000 years of local history using a range of maps has been extended until June.

The exhibition at Redbridge Museum was due to finish at the end of the week but will now continue until June 14.

The museum, in Winston Way, Ilford, is showing maps from the 17th Century to modern phone apps.

It explores 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.
