Do you live on a bomb site?

Bomb Sight screenshotHave you ever wondered why the house next door is such a different style? Or why houses in your street have tie bars to hold them together? It may just be they were bombed in the war!

History students and buffs, estate agents and property hunters alike might well find this new website fascinating, which shows the location of bombs in London during the Blitz (7 October 1940 to 6 June 1941) in World War II.

Leytonstone, like much of London and especially East London, suffered more than its fair share of bombing. See if your house or road was affected!
