The map displays the spatial expansion of a village called Chorleywood, located near London, since the 19th century.
A village's original settlement was located on the South-East side of the main road intersection in 1868. There was no major land-use change observed in 20 years from 1868. However, since Chorleywood Station and the railway were built in 1909, settlement sprawled to the South, around the station in years to 1922. For the next 50 years, the urban area continued to expand following the South side of the railway, yet close to the main road.
The biggest expansion of the village was recorded between 1970 and 1994, roughly expanded twofold in a spatial term. The focal factor of this rapid urban sprawl was the new motorway, which was built in 1970. From this year, settlement began to broaden around the motorway, mainly adjacent to the crossing of the motorway and the railway, which is placed on the East side of the station, South-East side of Chorleywood Park, and Golf Course.
