Tonbridge Library should hold OS Maps of West Malling .They should show boundaries.

Here's the 1960 google earth with the modern estate overlain, I would assume that the airfield boundary did not extend much beyond the dispersal pens.

West Malling Airfield
« Reply #1 on: April 18, 2017, 11:03:21 »
I'm keen to find the boundary of the airfield as it would have been defined during WWII as it had an impact on historical Rights of Way leading to and from the area.  Does anyone know where I might find a map which might give sufficient detail for this purpose (and if somewhere like the Kent Library what it might be found under)?
Thanks in hope!
