Our map of the week takes us far back 2500 years ago to the Iron Age camp of Uphall. It is hard to believe this is where Ilford Lane now stands today!
The map was drawn after an excavation of the Howards Chemical Works on Uphall Lane, when it was demolished in the early 1980’s.
This plan was drawn by an archaeologist from the Passmore Edwards Museum in 1987. The drawing shows a number of round shaped houses at the camp. Each shape represents a ‘context’ where a find was discovered.
