ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Galaxies, radio ; Energy distributions Keywords: radiation mechanisms: non-thermal - cosmic rays - galaxies: active - galaxies: individual: 3C 31 - radio continuum: galaxies Abstract: We present a deep, low-frequency radio continuum study of the nearby Fanaroff-Riley class I (FR I) radio galaxy 3C 31 using a combination of LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR; 30-85 and 115-178MHz), Very Large Array (VLA; 290-420MHz), Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT; 609MHz) and Giant Metre Radio Telescope (GMRT; 615MHz) observations. Description: We present maps with LOFAR Low-Band Antenna (LBA) at 52MHz, LOFAR High-Band Antenna (HBA) at 145MHz, VLA P-band at 360MHz, and GMRT at 615MHz. These maps are presented at their native resolution using robust weighting. We also present LBA, HBA, and VLA maps at matched (u,v) coverage between 0.04 and 4.9 klambda. For completeness, we present again the WSRT map of Strom et al. (1983A&A...122..305S) at 609MHz, at approximately matched (u,v) coverage. For the VLA, we present one further map only from B- and C-configuration at 360MHz.
