An online map – Bomb Sight – has been produced which shows the location of every bomb which fell on London during WWII. Backed by the National Archives it has extremely detailed information about the bomb sites down to which street they fell on.
In 2010-11, 70 years after the bombs were falling, we ran the Wansteadium Blitz Project in which we published a note of each bomb which fell on Wanstead on the same date and time as the actual incident. It felt to us a vivid way to notice the extended period of weeks and months that our forebears endured with nightly uncertainty.
The new map makes a different point, demonstrating the sheer number of incidents London saw. It’s definitely worth a look – this link should take you directly to the map of Wanstead.
