The London/Surrey boundary. Beddlestead

Boundary London/Surrey/Bromley
The boundary goes north west in a straight line. It crosses a footpath which goes between Bedlestead Lane Lusted Hall Lane and then along the west side of Shepherd’s Shaw, Cherry Tree Shaw, Round Wood and crosses Norheads Lane.

Agricultural area with scattered woodland. This feels very remote and it is surprise to find that most of the square is in London
