The London/Kent boundary Knockholt/Cudham borders

Boundary London/Kent/Bromley
The boundary leaves New Year’s Lane when it is crossed by two paths between New Year’s Wood and Birches Croft. It follows a path through New Year’s Wood eventually taking an eastern fork to go to Cacket’s Lane. At the lane it goes sharp south and continues south skirting the western edge of Broom Wood.

The boundary continues through more ancient countryside - housing here is scattered and despite its rural feel has for the last hundred years or so provided homes for the wealthy.
an area of woodland and agricultural land
